As a business owner, you might consider the sale of your company. The food and beverage industry has experienced increased activity in this area over the years, particularly in the middle market sector. Buyers are diverse – strategic, private equity, ESOPs, and internal sales.
Understanding how to market your business is one of the essential strategic items that you need to address as early as possible to drive the valuation and efficiency of the transaction. Specifically, it is vital that you understand the critical components of your business before beginning the sale process, given the importance of timing in an M&A transaction.
