    Eric R. Voth

    Like you, I have experience as an independent business owner.

    During the course of my career, I’ve been personally undertaken …

    • The startup of 10 independent businesses.

    • The purchase of five independent businesses.

    • The sale of five independent companies (two of which were actually mergers).

    • The startup of four franchise operations.

    • The loss of my investment in four independent businesses that were unsuccessful.

    These experiences allow me the unique perspective of being able to empathize with you as you contemplate the sale of your company. I’m familiar with the mix of feelings and emotions that sometimes accompany such thoughts. I’ve had them myself.

    This introduction is designed to acquaint you with my background as an “in-the-trenches” business owner. Perhaps you can identify with some of my experiences.

    Results of Family Owned Business Exit Plan Survey

    Rothstein Kass (www.rkco.com), a New York based accounting and advisory services firm, recently introduced “Heading for the Exits: Preparing for the Sale of a Family Business,” a survey report that evaluates the near- and intermediate-term outlook for family-owned enterprises considering the sale of a majority stake.

    It contains some very enlightening information…
    • Over 92 percent of family business owners pursuing a sale reported that no family member is able to take over.
    • Inaccurate or outdated business valuations can make it more difficult to determine if a proposed sale will yield a fair price.
    • Nearly 95 percent of business owners reported that getting the best price remains a central concern.

    For more information on the report, check out this link to Private Equity Professional Digest:
