BUSINESS TRANSITION & SUCCESSION
Plan today for an effective transition tomorrow.
While businesses can be perpetual, its owners and management are not. Obstacles and opportunities will present themselves. When this occurs, it is critical your company has a plan in place that allows for a seamless transition. It is imperative that business leaders assess their organization’s transition and succession planning as the cost of not doing so can be catastrophic. Working without a transition or succession plan in place can lead to uncertainty, disruptions, and even damage your competitiveness. Planning for the future means creating a detailed approach to transition and succession, which allows you to monetize your business on your terms and in the time horizon you would like. It also is a way of making sure your clients will be in good hands, as the survival of your business in the long term will depend on a sound strategy that includes thorough planning. The decision of what entity structure is used, financing options, and valuation methods all have a direct impact on your organization’s future. That is why transition and succession planning is a vital element of your business, and should be at the forefront when considering operations and strategy.
