ExitMap Express

The ExitMap® Express™ (Enterprise Subscribers Only)
A Cost Effective Exit Planning System for Small Business

 
 
 
 
 
Comprehensive exit planning is designed for mid-market enterprises. But what about the small business owner? Exiting is still the most important financial event of their lifetime. They deserve professional guidance and someone to defend their objectives, but few can afford the multi-disciplinary approach available to larger companies.

The ExitMap® Express™ system is designed for the 90% of businesses with less
than 20 employees. It includes 9 distinct modules, utilizing 9 proprietary
online tools, and should be completed in approximately 90 days.

Small businesses are unlikely to attract strategic acquirers or private equity investment. ESOPs and IPOs are outside their capacity. The ExitMap® Express process gives an owner the answers he or she needs to understand their exit options.

Express Answers:

Prospective Buyers: Family, employees, partners or another entrepreneur?
Distance to Goal: How much is needed? How much is realistic, and how long will it take?
How do I get there? What operational, personnel and financial improvements are required?
What will I do after my transition?

Express Advantages:

• Incorporates video conferencing technology at every
  step of the process
 
• No travel time for the Advisor
 
• Location-independent. Consult for clients across town
  or across the country
 
• Flexible scheduling
 
• A step-by-step process which keeps engagements on

The ExitMap® Express™ gives your small business client a sense of
control. He or she will, perhaps for the first time, understand how
to manage the timing, method and proceeds of exiting.
