A Process That Improves Deal Quality

Exit Strategies employs a proprietary process and tools designed to create an optimal match between the buyer and seller. Although deal success is never a forgone conclusion, the Exit Strategy process creates a bias or “tilt” toward success because both parties have certain critical and fundamental compatibilities. Our structured process involves the development of an Investor Profile and a Business Profile. A comparison of these profiles result in the Exit Strategies “Tilt Analysis”.

The Exit Strategies Business Profile begins with an extensive fact finding interview with the investor. Part of this interview is designed to identify and where possible measure the elements the investment entity looks for in a company. This results in a profile of the type of business that creates the greatest likelihood for a successful transaction for the investor. This is the Exit Strategies Business Profile.
