Business Succession & Exit Planning
Maximizing Value Through Exit
Don't fall at the final hurdle when it comes to maximizing value
Many New Zealand business owners will invest decades in building a successful business, but often fall at the final hurdle when it comes time to plan for a successful exit.
Business succession and exit planning is one of the most important yet most misunderstood financial strategies for any business owner. It relates directly to the ability of the business owner to extract the maximum amount of value from the business when it comes time to exit.
Understanding the true value of all your assets – both tangible and intangible – along with being able to articulate where this value lies, are critical aspects to ensuring that you can maximize your business value and implement a successful exit strategy.

When is the right time to start planning?
Like most things, leaving your exit strategy to the last minute will only hurt you and your business.
Today, more than 85% of enterprise value for companies in the S&P 500 is driven by intangible assets (such as data, brand, confidential information, trade secrets etc). Not identifying, correctly valuing, or articulating the value of these assets can mean that founders leave significant value on the table.
EverEdge can help you determine the right strategy for your business and how to maximize value upon exit.
We really enjoyed working with Michael and his team and learning more about the Intangible Assets within our Business.

During the sale process I was working closely with Craig and the team. Selling a business is always a tough time and I found the EverEdge team extremely professional during the whole process. Nothing was a problem for them and for me this made it a much easier process. They guided me and my team through the whole process and we achieved an excellent outcome.
