Hiring guide to find the perfect Exit Strategy consultant

An exit strategy is a crucial element of any business plan. It outlines the steps and processes for an owner to successfully sell, merge, or liquidate their business. Engaging external consultants can provide valuable insights, streamline the process, and help achieve the best possible outcome. This guide will walk you through setting up an exit strategy and explain how external consultants can play a vital role in the planning and execution stages.

  1. Define your objectives and timeline

Begin by setting clear objectives for your exit strategy. Identify the reasons for exiting the business, such as retirement, pursuing new opportunities, or financial gain. Determine your preferred timeline for executing the exit strategy, keeping in mind that this process may take several months to a few years, depending on the complexity of the business.

How external consultants can help: External consultants can assist in defining objectives and creating a realistic timeline. They can provide an unbiased perspective, helping you to assess your goals and prioritize your needs.

  1. Conduct a business valuation

To understand the true value of your business and set a price for potential buyers, a comprehensive business valuation is necessary. This involves assessing the company’s financial health, assets, liabilities, and market position.

How external consultants can help: External consultants specializing in business valuation can help you determine the fair market value of your company, identify potential value-enhancing strategies, and provide guidance on structuring the transaction to optimize financial outcomes.

  1. Develop a comprehensive exit plan

Create a detailed exit plan outlining the steps to be taken, including legal, financial, and operational aspects. This should also include a communications strategy to inform stakeholders about the planned exit.

How external consultants can help: External consultants can help you develop a comprehensive exit plan by providing expert guidance on each aspect of the process. They can also help identify potential risks and create contingency plans to address them.

  1. Prepare your business for sale

Before bringing your business to market, take steps to optimize its value and appeal to potential buyers. This may involve improving operational efficiency, resolving any outstanding legal or financial issues, and demonstrating a clear growth trajectory.

How external consultants can help: External consultants can conduct a thorough review of your business operations, identify areas for improvement, and provide recommendations to enhance its value. They can also help you address any potential roadblocks to a successful exit.

  1. Engage potential buyers and negotiate terms

Identify and engage potential buyers or merger partners. This process may involve creating a confidential information memorandum, a document that highlights the key aspects of your business and serves as a marketing tool for potential buyers.

How external consultants can help: External consultants can support the process of identifying and engaging potential buyers. They can also help in negotiating the terms of the transaction, ensuring that your interests are protected and that you achieve the best possible outcome.

  1. Execute the exit strategy and transition the business

Once the terms of the transaction have been agreed upon, work with your external consultants, legal counsel, and financial advisors to execute the exit strategy. This will involve finalizing the legal and financial aspects of the transaction and facilitating a smooth transition of the business to the new owner.

How external consultants can help: External consultants can help ensure a seamless execution of your exit strategy by coordinating with your legal and financial advisors. They can also support the transition process by providing guidance on change management and communication strategies.


Setting up an exit strategy is a complex process that requires careful planning, execution, and support. Engaging external consultants can help business owners navigate this process more efficiently and achieve the best possible outcome. By following the steps outlined in this guide and leveraging the expertise of external consultants, you can create a successful exit strategy that meets your objectives and maximizes the value of your business.
