Exit Planning

Subtle details matter, especially for closely held businesses.

Focused on the long-term result, Gateway transitions business owners to the desired life they seek. Unlike traditional exit planners and business brokers whose goal is to "close the deal ASAP" - Gateway works to find the right buyer (or seller) and close on your terms so your legacy lives after you've signed the dotted line.

Gateway works on both the buy side and sell side for transactions involving enterprise values between $7 million and $50 million.

Gateway differentiates itself from other intermediaries by:

  • Identifying key performing indicators (KPIs) and maximizing their economic values

  • Measuring KPI performance and providing ongoing reviews

  • Educating the owner(s) about all possible exit strategies 

  • Identifying the pros and cons of each buyer type

  • Creating a pitch book that caters to the identified buyer type (for sell-side clients) and highlights the company's growth opportunities

  • GVC will calculate synergies and negotiate synergistic value with the buyer 

  • GVC serves as the quarterback in the negotiation (e.g., QOE diligence reports, information requests, negotiations, and other)

  • Preparing owners for life to come and the psychological ramifications of selling a business, before, during and after the sale (or other exit mechanism) is finalized
