Are You a Successful Seller?

Is there a Perfect Time to Sell?

clock and growth money

As sell-side business brokers, we're often asked about Timing.

While we could provide a long winded answer, suffice it to say -
There's no perfect time to sell...
There's YOUR time to sell.

That time is when You and the Business are ready.

To that point...
Have you identified life's next step and eagerly await the transition?
Do you have a baseline or current business valuation?

You've heard it repeatedly...Preparation is the cornerstone of a successful sale.  Ideally, it starts with a business valuation by a knowledgeable advisor.  The assessment offers more than a snapshot of what your business is currently worth. The 360 degree review will likely identify business trends or information gaps as well as pinpoint areas for improvement.  Don't overlook or fail to react to these actionable insights. They become the basis for initiatives that over time will increase business value and enhance buyer interest.

Is this the Perfect Time for You to Sell?  

Valuations are a core MT Consulting service. Let us assess your business & determine how ready you are.  Call us at 610-527-8400.

Is Disney Leading the Healthcare Bandwagon?

Is Disney the real disruptor?... leading the way in a new approach to controlling healthcare costs.  Last week's Amazon, Berkshire Hathaway, JP Morgan Chase healthcare announcement - vague as it was - took a few businesses by surprise, notably healthcare insurers.  This week we learn that Disney's plan entails bypassing insurers and contracting directly with Orlando area hospitals for its regional workforce.  There's a few players clearly affected... independent physician groups, for one, as well as Disney employees unhappy with a narrowing network of providers.  Time will tell if this proves to be the general model that the Big 3 use going forward.  >>Read more
