Most business owners will not be able to successfully exit their business.

We are here to change that for you.

You have worked hard, made sacrifices, as well as tough choices. Like most business owners, you were sometimes out there on your own. You took that risk on and built a company you are proud of. However, like every other business owner, there does come a time to decide, “what’s next? What is next for me and my business?” For most owners, that means it is now time to harvest, realize, and truly enjoy the real worth you have created.

Most likely, you started... (continue reading)

Most likely, you started (bought or took over) your business for the freedom it gives you and your family. That freedom can come in the form of money, pursuit of a passion, being in charge, etc. There definitely comes a time when the most effective manner for you to continue that freedom is actually to exit your business, in one way or another, realize the true value, and fully embrace your next chapter in life.

Sometimes the hardest part is the first step, making the decision to exit your business. We admit it, this can be a bit daunting and quite frankly, it should give you pause. As matter of fact, for most owners, the sale of their business is the single largest transaction they will ever make. However, the story doesn’t stop there.

Most owners, just like you, who want to sell their business will not be able to do so. The statistics show that less than 30% of companies that try to sell are successful. Also, half of business sales are not necessarily by the owner’s choice, often they are set off any one of the 
“Dismal Ds” of death, divorce, disability or dispute. Because of these issues, it is no surprise that a PWC survey found that 75% of owners who sold their business had some level of significant regret. That survey also found the reason, the owners simply were not prepared. Underlying reasons such as personal, value, life after the sale, etc. all circle back to you having “real world” expectations and the straight up truth.

Without a doubt, you deserve a better exit.

THAT’S WHERE WE COME IN.

Changing your Odds for Better Outcomes

The simple facts are less than 30% of businesses that want to sell do. Of those that do sell over 70% have some level of post-sale regret. Half of all business owners exiting are doing so in need. BMA knows you deserve better; the realized value of your hard work should not be left to a “coin flip”. We want you to have the exit of your choice, on your timing, with less stress, and most importantly, one you are proud of. BMA knows how to do that.

Who we help

BMA represents business owners and their families in the sale of their business. Most of our clients are nearing retirement and looking to secure the value they have built up over many years. Most (not all) are from fields such as manufacturing, distribution and services and have revenue between $2-25 million.

How we help

Most business owners have never sold a business, we have. BMA brings both Fortune 500 and entrepreneurial M&A experience to bring business owners a level of professional advice not typically available to small business owners. Our process is designed to align your exit objectives with the market, seek out your best buyers, and give you freedom to choose your path. We understand the importance of this transaction to you and your family, so we strive to ensure each step moves you closer to your goal.

When we help

BMA is here to help owners assess if they are truly ready to sell and if so, to sell their business. While the timing of these steps can vary, if you wish to exit your business in 1-2 years you need to be in the market now. If you plan is to sell your business for your retirement or your next chapter in life, it is never really too soon to be.
