Is 2017 the Time to Buy or Sell?

The M&A market for buying and selling businesses is hot, hot, hot.  2017 is off to a great start and is loaded with opportunity for those who seek it.  As a business owner, this is the time to look at your business and assess the opportunities – is it time to grow through acquisition or sell for a premium?  On the one hand, strong company revenues and earnings may provide the financial leverage needed to buy a competitor or make a synergistic acquisition.  On the other hand, the best time to sell is when company financials are strong and improving.  

» Now is the time to take stock on where you are and where you want to be.  

Where you are in your career and whether or not you are approaching retirement make a big difference in what opportunities lie ahead.  If you are looking towards retirement or ready to pursue a new venture, now may be the time to sell.  However, if you envision continuing to grow the company, start thinking about the best path to do so.  Growth through acquisition is a great way to accelerate your company’s growth.  What efficiencies or new capabilities could be added by acquiring a new company?  Think carefully about the direction your company could take and how to expand in ways that will improve profits and ensure long term success.

Whether buying or selling, now is a great time to take action and consider the opportunities awaiting you and your business.
