Selling A Technology Company - Are you ready to sell your Technology Business?
by Mike Ryan, President and Founder of Technology Capital and Mergers, LLC
Sell your Technology Company Outright — as technology financial advisors, at any given time we have technology sector clients looking to buy technology related businesses. And we certainly know how to source these specialized buyers.
Re-capitalization — selling a part of the company while retaining an equity participation in the company's future. This re-capitalization may allow the company the structure to grow to the next level. It may also allow the owner to take some money off the table to diversify their portfolio or to explore additional opportunities outside the company.
Raising Capital for your Technology Business — Selling part of your technology company versus selling the entire technology business is another option to raise capital. Many potential buyers value the opportunity to buy into a company whose successful founder or principal will remain at the helm — for obvious reasons.
Before Selling Your Technology Business | Consider YOUR Goals!
What are my 'GOALS' as the owner of the business? You may want to liquidate some or all of your technology business assets to fund your retirement.
Do you want to remain involved in your company? Some sellers want to retire as soon as possible while others prefer to have an ongoing involvement with their technology business.
What are my objectives for my technology company? For instance, the business needs a capital investment in order to grow.
Who else will be affected? Your decision on how to sell your business should consider shareholders, managers and employees, as well as major customers and suppliers. We can help you tailor a plan that will achieve all of your goals.
Selling part or all of your technology business may be the best way to achieve your goals. If you want to sell your technology company outright, raise capital for growth or retirements, or anything in between, call us. We are always more than happy to help you understand your options.
