A key component to Value Acceleration is best-in-class performance

Financial KPI’s, or Key Performance Indicators, track progress within a framework that continually evaluates operational improvements.  The continual, quarterly loop creates a roadmap to success.

Best-in-class performance drivers simultaneously reduce risk while engendering value through business improvements.  A leap in value is created when more profit makes its way to the bottom line – while with each planning cycle the business becomes more attractive to buyers, resulting in a higher value multipliers buyers are willing to offer for the business.  In exit planning terms, this Profit Gap and Value Gap result in a non-linear equation to create the environment for leaps in value:


Each cycle closes with a grow-or-exit decision.  Most owners choose to repeat the value acceleration process many times.

The most important point, however – I cannot stress this enough – is that through the Value Acceleration process owners have a realistic option to exit if they choose to.  This option is priceless in situations where involuntary exits occur.

There is a saying in the industry – “transition ready businesses are more valuable”.  Thus, Value Acceleration is “attached at the hip” with Exit Planning.
