Our process

Final Ascent’s seasoned advisors have decades of experience guiding clients through the intricate sale process. We understand what it’s like to be a business owner at that final sale, wishing we had known more beforehand and feeling uncertain about what follows. That’s why we make sure our team is there to guide you every step of the way. We know the financial and emotional stakes are high when selling your business and we do everything we can to make sure you feel good about your decision and the future ahead.

We start with Exit Strategy & Succession Planning, focusing on freeing up the owner’s time working in the business and building a strong management team that is attractive to buyers. The biggest demotivator in a sales process is owner concentration. Business owners who successfully delegate their job responsibilities and grant approval and authority for their management team to execute build sellable and lucrative platforms for prospective acquirers. Leveraging our proprietary Reach Your Peak Exit Planning Process, we delve into company dynamics that affect enterprise value, fortifying value-building systems that make businesses more attractive to potential buyers. Our approach will help you reach your goals and your desired market value to get you ready to sell.

Our confidential M&A process and best-in-class M&A tools allow us to bring only the most serious, qualified buyers to the table who are not only willing and able to buy at the right price but will also be a good fit for your goals. We know there are a lot of factors to consider when looking for the right buyer, and we take the time to listen and ensure we find the right fit for each of our clients. Each of our clients has unique needs and goals. Our team guides each M&A journey with the client’s satisfaction in mind because your success is our success.

Traditional industry practices often neglect business owners’ needs, concentrating solely on the sale, which could leave them vulnerable post-sale. Selling your business leaves you with time and money to start your next adventure whether that’s building a new business, enjoying retirement or creating financial safety for your family in the years to come. Collaborating with us on the final ascent, business owners can secure a sellable enterprise, a smooth exit, and enduring multi-generational prosperity.
