Planning An Exit Strategy for Your Manufacturing Business

The first step in putting your manufacturing business up for sale is to plan your exit strategy carefully. Things to consider for your strategy include how you want to leave your company, who you want to take over, the value of your manufacturing business, and whether or not you wish to sell your equity as well as your assets.

In addition to your own preferences, the buyer you choose will also require documentation of additional data and should supply you information about his or her company, financial information, etc. With all these documents and steps necessary during the buying and selling process, it is crucial to partner with experts in the M&A field to walk you through the process and help get you a deal for your established or relocatable company.

Valuation Methods for Manufacturing Companies

After determining your exit strategy, you must get a valuation of your company from skilled and experienced mergers & acquisitions advisors at Ashley Capital Group.

How Can I Value a Manufacturing Company?

In general, there are four primary valuation methods for manufacturing businesses:

  • Profit Multiplier
  • Market-Comparable
  • Asset-Based
  • Income-Based

Each valuation method has its advantages and disadvantages, so it is vital to review those methods with your M&A advisors before agreeing to one over the others. They understand how to sell your business and can choose the best plan of company valuation to get the most from negotiations.
