Exit and Succession Planning

new owner According to the Massey University Centre for SME Research, 64% of private business owners are planning to exit their businesses in the next 10 years.  Of those owners, 70% intend the proceeds of the exit to fund their retirement, but 87% have no formal plan of just how they will achieve that.

If you are one of the more than 200,000 business owners who will be exiting your business in the next decade, how will you make your business stand out from the hundreds of other similar businesses and achieve top dollar during the final exit process?

Will YOU be in control of the exit process by planning your preferred outcome, or will the nature and timing of your exit be forced upon you through circumstances?


To address these vital questions, Icon Business Solutions has joined forces with a world leading expert in exit and succession planning, John Hawkey of Buckmaster Hawkey to help New Zealand business owners control their exit process and maximise the value of the business. Buckmaster Hawkey has been providing specialist exit strategy planning ("ESP") and corporate advisory services since 1985, both in the United Kingdom and abroad. To visit their website, click here
