Exit Map SnapshotThe first step in the planning process is to complete an ExitMap® Assessment. The online assessment tool is the first step in the process. It will reveal your overall preparedness for transition, detailing four critical areas: financial readiness, ease of planning, revenue streams, and operational efficiency. The result is a 12-page summary report broken down by each area. Then, should you decide to continue the exit planning process, we provide a complete Exit Map Analysis for business owners. It is a 40-page report detailing the importance, urgency, and difficulty associated with each response given in the assessment.

There is one indisputable fact – 100% of owners will eventually exit their business. The ExitMap® Assessment is a multiple-choice questionnaire that does not ask for confidential or financial information. Nevertheless, it is a critical first step in starting the discussion and planning process. Click here for FAQs and more information concerning our free, no-obligation exit planning assessment.

Value Builder Score ReportThe ValueBuilder System incorporates several diagnostic tools, including the ValueBuilder Score, an evaluation system driven by an algorithm that evaluates a business on the eight core values acquirers consider when valuing and buying companies. The ValueBuilder Score provides a comprehensive assessment of the “Salability” of your business, whether you want to sell next year or to know that you’re building a valuable asset for the future. As CEPAs and Certified Value Builders, our team is qualified to interpret your Value Builder Score. Those businesses that achieve a Value Builder Score of 90 or greater are worth double the average-performing company. At BEST, our goal is to dramatically increase your business’s value, anticipating a future sale or ownership transition.
