Great companies work diligently to ensure that they are stable and sustainable for the future, which means that a well-run business stays in business for a long time. This is inevitably going to lead to transitions in management, ownership or both. Selling your company is as much about finding intangible investment value as it is about calculating the fair market value of your operation. You need an experienced advisor that knows the ins and outs of the process and has years of experience in guiding and smoothing out the ownership transition process. Paladin can help ease the transition of ownership by:

Providing knowledgeable experience

Experience is the best teacher – there is only so much that numbers and theories can do to help. The only way to truly understand how ownership transition works is by doing it. Our experienced team will provide you with advice and points of view crafted over years of experience in the business, and help you find value in areas you might not be aware of.

Providing a professional valuation

Negotiations often get bogged down over what the company is worth. Paladin can provide you a fair business valuation based on our extensive expertise with private, small-to-medium sized businesses. We can help you find investment value where you might not know you have it. Investment value is often found in qualities that don’t show up on the financial statements. We understand your business from a holistic perspective, and base our valuation on numerous factors such as:

  • Your business strategy
  • The current industry climate
  • Your technology and innovation
  • Processes within your company
  • Reputation, among other things

All of these factors and more contribute to the value of your business. We will make sure that you don’t leave anything on the table.

Providing expert services

The transition from one ownership group to the next is incredibly complex, and doing it properly means taking a hands-on approach to planning and execution. If you have specific goals aside from divestiture, we can help you meet them by providing expert services in the areas of:

  • Family business succession
  • Management buyouts
  • Employee share ownership planning
  • Business marketability enhancement
  • Business divestiture readiness & preparation

When it comes time to divest in your business, you are going to want to make sure that you get out of it everything that you worked so hard to put in. Paladin eases the transition of ownership of small to mid-sized companies by providing expert services, finding investment value, and sharing our extensive knowledge and experience with you.
