For many small to medium business owners, the eventual sale of their business is an integral part of their retirement planning.

  • 78% of small business owners plan to fund their retirement from the sale of their business.
  • Furthermore, those same business owners plan to fund 60% to 100% of their retirement needs from that sale.
  • For many businesses, the two key determinants of business transition are leaving enough time to plan and having an adequate plan in place.
  • Only 25% of business owners have any type of plan in place.
