Thinking of Selling Your Business? B2B EXIT Puts You in the Driver’s Seat

B2B CFO Leads Industry Shift, Offering Unmatched Control in Business Sales B2B EXIT Book & Software CHANDLER, Ariz., Oct. 17, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — B2B CFO unveils B2B EXIT today, addressing an industry void for specialized guidance in business sales and positioning the company as the ultimate control tool for business owners considering a sale. This introduction represents the culmination of a decade of industry-altering research and development. “Our company has lived and breathed this industry for years and we saw a glaring gap. Business owners lacked a resource offering them genuine control during the sales process. B2B EXIT changes that,” said Jerry L. Mills, Founder and CEO of B2B CFO and B2B EXIT, reaffirming the company’s commitment to revolutionizing the business sales landscape and empowering owners to secure the deals they deserve. The timing is especially compelling, given the recent insights from BizBuySell Insight Report, which depicts an increasingly complicated landscape for business sales. BizBuySell Insight Report signals both challenges and opportunities in the marketplace. While the report highlights increasing complexities in deal structures, it also identifies promising trends for both buyers and sellers. The report quotes Kentucky-based business buyer Barrios, who predicts that 2023 and 2024 will offer the best opportunities for acquiring well-established businesses at good prices and profit margins, provided buyers are well-informed, financially prepared, and passionate about entrepreneurship. The need for B2B EXIT is further underscored with data cited by Growth-Drive, which reveals a pressing concern: while 17% of business owners are preparing to sell their companies, a staggering 95% of them cannot maximize the transferable value of their business.
