2023- A Tsunami of Business Exits Predicted!

Expectations for 2023:

According to the CFIB Jan 10, 2023, 75% of all small and mid-market business owners are currently considering a future sale, resulting in a potential $2 trillion in assets that are expected to transfer in the next 10 years.

We have been anticipating this tsunami to hit shore for many years and the stress and burnout caused by the pandemic and spin-off challenges has finally pushed most owners to this point. Click here to read more.

Transition Architects will play a critical part in making sure these owners have their companies well positioned and ready to attract buyers, ensuring their businesses Thrive Through the Transition!

Transition Architects used much of 2022 to retrench and firm up its service offering for small and medium sized (SME) business owners planning their transitions and exit.

Some of our Highlights from 2022:

  • We completed a challenging but ultimately successful two-stage buyout for a client whose previous attempts to sell had failed. Our strategy allowed the seller’s wife to vacate the business within three months and the owner to refocus purely on sales and service. All parties are very pleased with the outcome, and improved growth potential from this platform operation.
  • Transition Architects also completed several key assessment engagements, coaching business owners as they prepare and position their businesses. Most will be coming to market in 2023!

The Transition Architects team has grown:

Ross Jones has joined the Transition Architects team and is a strong and critical addition, especially for complex clients. Learn more about Ross here.

We are now well positioned with the necessary capacity and expertise for the tsunami of small and mid-market business exits expected to occur over the next decade. We are looking forward to supporting these coming transitions to ensure SME Businesses Continue to Thrive!

Happy New Year and Best Wishes for 2023!
