    XPX long island case study part 5:

    Defining success- what is it you really want from an exit?

    The owners of HiTech, our case study company, are looking for ways to create additional value in their business in pursuit of a profitable exit. Transforming their operations will be a key driver of their ability to grow revenue, increase margins, and create a more sustainable company. By using operations as a driver of growth rather than a cost center, HiTech can make both their current business and their future roadmap more appealing to strategic and private equity buyers.

    We will discuss how to transform HiTech's operations from a successful small business to a scalable, sustainable, and more profitable company. We will look at how to evaluate the maturity of their operations and systems, identify priorities for investment, and look at how to improve their management structure so they can successfully execute these changes. In doing so, we will see how operations can support (or hinder) other areas of focus including strategic planning and sales, and how embracing a digital mindset will allow them to both improve execution and portray HiTech as a forward-looking company with a clear niche in the modern economy.

    How to Emotionally Prepare Key Stakeholders for a Successful Transition

    People always have mixed feelings about change. When negative feelings are not surfaced and addressed in a systematic way, they often assert themselves exactly when they stand to do the most damage, at the closing.

    Thoughtful exit planners do well to find ways to address the needs and concerns of all individuals and groups affected by an exit or business transition.

    Our panelists will explore with us how to:

    • Anticipate common hopes, concerns, feelings, and cognitive biases associated with exits
    • Prepare the owner/s early on, so things go smoothly later
    • Support the family, the leadership team, and the rest of the workforce
    • Collaborate with experts in change management
