Exit Planning

What is Exit Planning?

Exit planning seamlessly integrates planning, concept, effort, and process into a straightforward strategy, ensuring the business is built to be transferable with robust human, structural, customer, and social capital.

It's essential to understand that exit planning goes beyond a static plan; it's a strategic approach deeply rooted in execution. This strategy not only enhances the business's value but also increases opportunities, enabling the owner to transition the business on their terms when the time is right.

The beauty of exit planning lies in its alignment with the owner's business, personal, and financial needs. Certified Exit Planning Advisors (CEPA®) play a pivotal role in educating owners about various exit options while maintaining an exit-option-agnostic perspective to genuinely cater to the diverse needs of business owners. Through collaboration with a skilled, multi-disciplinary team, including professionals with different specialties, CEPAs work cohesively to support the success of the business owner and leverage their collective expertise for the benefit of the project.

State of Owner Readiness Report 

The Boy Scouts of America have a simple motto that has served them well since 1908: Be Prepared. Preparation is a key ingredient in success and nowhere is that truer than when the time comes for a business owner to exit their business.

Like the Boy Scouts, The Exit Planning Institute® (EPI) also has a simple motto: To Produce Better Outcomes for Business Owners when the Time Comes to Exit their Business. To that end, EPI, in conjunction with our local EPI Twin Cities Metro Area Chapter, is pleased to present the results of our 2023 State of Owner Readiness Survey.
