Planning an Exit Strategy Services
Selling your fitness business is far more complex than just picking a price and posting a “for sale” sign. Buyers want to know they are getting something of value now, and something with potential for the future. An exit strategy is the game plan that ensures your facility shows that value and demonstrates that potential. Depending on the current fiscal sate of the facility, an exit strategy should be in place between 3-6 months before expecting to attract a qualified buyer. The greater the cash flow, the shorter the exit time frame.
The best way to receive top dollar for a fitness business is by showing good cash flow over the years preceding placing the facility on the market. That means business owners have to be good planners, smart managers and detail oriented operators. They need to have marketing plans in place to keep sales growing, and sound operating protocols to keep control of expenses. It is often a good idea for fitness owner/operators to work with professionals such as business brokers, accountants and specialized consultants in the planning process of their exit strategy to make sure they understand what is necessary to meet their business sale objectives.
