Written by Rachel Watson

The tumult of the past 15 months is leading many business owners to think about retirement, but a local firm says only 1 in 4 have a formal succession plan in place.

Among the many tough decisions business owners are facing in 2020 is that of selling – specifically, whether now is a good time to transition the organization to a new owner, or better to hold on, ride out these turbulent times, and make that call further down the road.  It’s a decision that’s come to the forefront, thanks to a perfect storm of more people reaching retirement age – approximately 10,000 people are retiring each day, and an estimated one trillion dollars in wealth will be transferred – and a shaky economic landscape that’s left many business owners who had been planning for high levels of profitability at the start of 2020 now considering their exit strategies sooner rather than later.  What is my company worth?
