With the continued expansion of the economy, there’s no time like the present for would-be entrepreneurs to consider launching a business (Especially when you consider the recent tax and regulatory reform). Tip of the Spear Ventures’ Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A) Business Advisory Service was established to (1) assist those desiring to purchase a business, as well as (2) those business owners looking to exit or sell their existing business.
A recent UBS study titled Q1 Investor Watch Report, reports that nearly 60% (58%) of sampled wealthy investors would consider starting a business. The report also reflects 52% of existing business owners are looking to capitalize on the robust economy and sell within the next 5-years (20% would like to create a succession plan whereby heirs would take over the business responsibilities, while 18% say that they will opt to simply shut the business down). Why the large percentage of business owners looking to exit? The study found 2 succession reasons in particular:
- Succession plans whereby the business would be turned over to heirs reflect that these successors would rather have cash in the bank versus ownership in the business (82%).
- Millennials also reflect a propensity to hold back and not run a business, citing business ownership and entrepreneurship are simply too stressful (80%)
