"You can't fatten the pig on the way to the market"
It’s an old saying but it underpins the fundamental components of building an exit strategy at an early opportunity. We challenge every client to become "investment ready".
Investment ready businesses are capable of changing hands but are more fun to keep … they are more profitable, more independent, more strategic and more focussed on where they are heading. And therefore more attractive to a prospective buyer.
