Retire From Your Business on Your Terms
You have owned and operated a business that has exceeded expectations. You have made it your life’s work. You nurtured its growth into a healthy and profitable enterprise. Now what?
Our team provides the support you need to identify your next steps and transition with assurance. We have a deep respect and admiration for what you have accomplished and offer flexible solutions that fit your individual circumstance and financial goals that you will not find elsewhere.
The Veteran Owner’s Dilemma
Like many small business owners, the majority of your assets are tied up in your business. You think it is time to take some chips off the table to diversify your asset base, but…
- You do not have a succession plan or exit strategy;
- There is no one qualified/interested to transition into your role;
- Discontinuance or shutting down is not an option;
- You are worried the sale of your business result in lost jobs for your employees ; or
- You want the flexibility to make a complete exit or have ongoing involvement, post-sale.
Lorraine is Your Succession Plan
Our team will help you to transition confidently and seamlessly, offering partnership the way you want it. We offer the capital that allows you to exit and realize the equity you have created. Unlike others buyers, Lorraine’s members will be the successive management team – we will get our hands dirty. We will not review monthly financials from a far-away boardroom and obsess over margins without the benefit of direct, hands-on operational familiarity. Lorraine is committed to preserving your vision and bringing prolific and sustainable success to your enterprise.
Preserve and Strengthen Your Legacy
Money is fungible. Relationships are not. You have built your legacy and local reputation on your business and the right exit opportunity should advance it. At Lorraine, we have a shared respect and appreciation for local sensitivities on a personal and emotional level. Unlike other buyers, we do not have a “strip and flip” approach to partnership, which often includes cutting local jobs for short-term gain. Our strategy is rooted in growing and sustaining the value your business creates in the community it serves.
Optimize Your Exit Opportunity
Whether you are ready to make a complete exit or simply want to relieve yourself of the day-to-day operations, our commitment to flexibility truly means your terms, your way. Our partnership will advance your personalized needs and financial goals.
Not all exit opportunities are created equal. Learn about the Lorraine Advantage.
