Let’s face it - being an entrepreneur, building and running a business is hard and not for everyone. Not only is it a lot of work, but it can put a tremendous amount of stress on everyone involved. When this stress begins to manifest itself within a company’s leadership, executive management and board of directors issues are bound to arise. Many executives believe that they need to resolve all of the issues before even considering an exit.
While issues between partners or shareholders can have a very negative impact on the business, that should not be a barrier to an exit. Rather, an acquisition should be seen as the solution. Corum’s “8 Stages for an Optimal Outcome” creates a managed auction process that establishes a common bond, agreement or alignment between the parties; and by selling the company, the conflict may be resolved with no additional effort. What may appear to be unsolvable issues on their own can indeed be rectified with a successful outcome.
