About this Event

Are you thinking about selling your company? How will you know when the time is right? One of the biggest disconnects we see between sellers and buyers is each party's perception of risk in the company. Seasoned buyers can size up a company at first glance. If the perceived risk exceeds their comfort level, they will pass on the opportunity without ever engaging in negotiations. Any risk they perceive gets priced into your valuation even when they do engage.

What do you not want to do? Rushing to market without a detailed go-to-market plan is a recipe for lackluster offers and a protracted timeline that risks your exit goals. It takes significant time and effort for an M&A deal to take shape, so if you want to sell sooner rather than later– don't wait.

Though a merger or acquisition might only take a couple of months for the relevant parties to sign the dotted line, your business's risk and growth factors truly shape your transaction's timeline. Quantive has successfully executed over 150+ transactions.
