Exit strategies for private companies: seize the opportunity to secure your future

Published By: PwC     Published Date: Oct 03, 2019
We’re in one of the longest-running positive M&A cycles in recent history. Even as global economic headwinds develop, corporate and private equity investors continue to experience unparalleled access to capital for potential deals. This suggests that the current wave of US industry consolidations and aggressive private equity investing will continue into the foreseeable future, even as deal volume has slowed from recent peaks. At the same time, with increasing valuations for companies, expectations on sellers are more rigorous, even punishing on surprises. Proactive preparation has become mandatory; processes are more accelerated and data-driven, quality of earnings analysis and sell-side due diligence have become table stakes. Sellers have to respond appropriately and with confidence as experienced buyers move toward a close. Selling your company takes robust planning and discipline. Whether you are divesting the business completely or bringing in a private equity investor to fuel additional growth, the process you develop and follow will play a critical role in creating value for your shareholders and family. Everyone has a lot more data than even five years ago to value your business, including benchmarks and operational data sources. The one piece of information the market doesn’t have is your story: what you’ve done and what the business can do next, setting up a clear and credible case for terms you can justify. The glue that holds it together is that you are clear about buyers’ expectations, understand your company’s value and can evaluate and explain the prospects for your business. Above all, you need to have worked through what you want to accomplish for yourself and your stakeholders with a prospective transaction. To a large extent, this will determine the right exit strategy for you. Many entrepreneurs today are motivated by more outcomes than retirement or a simple wealth event. You may want to consider taking a “second bite at the apple.” This typically involves structuring an exit that divests a controlling stake but creates a continued role to grow the return on the remaining stake. Whatever path you may be considering, we hope this guide serves as a useful starting point for the conversations you will have with your stakeholders, trusted employees and family, as well as your advisers as you realize the value you’ve worked hard to create.

TDWI Report/Checklist “Delivering Business Value Faster with Visual Analytics” (2016)

Published By: Oracle Analytics     Published Date: Oct 06, 2017
Business decision making is undergoing a data-infused renaissance. Organizations are tired of the limitations of spreadsheets and dealing with long IT business intelligence (BI) development cycles just to gain access to the data they need now.

Increasingly, visual analytics tools provide easy-touse data preparation features for better data access. They support collaboration, mashups, and storytelling. TDWI Research sees growing interest in applying more modern, up-to-date tools for working with data.
