For a business to have genuine sale value now …
One Financial Year ends, another begins. How will 2015/16 be distinguished from its predecessors when in five years we look back and review?
I see in business, particularly in Micro, SME and Family businesses an acceleration in the need to perform at a higher than ever level, to retain value in the enterprise.
I see the pressure on survival and generational transferability growing, not going away.
In markets that are growing in total, new arrivals, competitors, always seem to find a beginning toehold and as the market grows, they grow too. Our markets have slowed however, making competition more intense.
For a business to have a genuine sale value now, it needs to be able to demonstrate continually improving revenue and cash flow, along with profitability that reflects a great return on investment.
We have many such businesses in our portfolio and these are the businesses that sell readily.
Seeking quality rarely disappoints. 2015/16 will continue to see ‘quality’ prosper.
