In today’s episode of the Centricity podcast, our host Sean Doyle sits down with Izach Porter to discuss navigating M&As as a middle-market companies and maximizing outcomes using proven methods.


Preparing to Be Acquired

  • Porter’s experience supporting businesses through M&As has shown him that having your business financials in order is one of the most important things you can do to prepare.

  • Buyers are interested in seeing business growth rates, so forecasting and fleshing out growth opportunities will give them the information they want.


Timing Your Partial Exit

  • Being in a growth stage will give you the highest possible valuation. People often sell when the business is in decline, which puts the seller in a position of weakness.

  • If you are not in a growth stage but are looking to sell, learn what needs to be fixed. Connect with buyers who have the necessary skills to make that happen.
