When business hear the term “exit strategy”, most assume this means failing to thrive and closing their doors. But there are other reasons to exit a business – some planned.
While much effort goes into starting a business, seldom does the same thought go into the exit strategy.
The most common form of an exit is a business sale, but the nature of the acquirer is diverse – a joint venture company, a supplier, a management or staff buy-out to name a few.
It is less common to exit via IPO and to have this as the sole exit option can be myopic. However, valuations achieved are significant and RedPepper Mergers is adept at strategizing to position companies for medium term ethical IPOs.
Disregarding the exit, a business which is cashflow positive and profitable is always the GOAL. Funding losses are only susstainable, if someone is funding them and then this requiries a solid reason to justify temporary “red ink”.
Lastly, liquidations and disaster events are unfortunate situations, which RedPepper Mergers mostly gets involve in as a buyer’s advocate, under an acquisition mandate.
