We help you consider financial and emotional factors when selling a business

We have over 20 years of experience helping business owners and entrepreneurs get the most value from their business sale.

You have several options to create liquidity. You can transfer your business to your children or other family members, you can look for a strategic buyer, you can sell ownership to your employees through an employee stock ownership plan, or you can merge with another company. Each of these options poses unique benefits and challenges - as business sell-side financial advisors, we help you navigate through them.

We can help you navigate this process unlike an investment banker, business broker, CPA, or M&A attorney. Are these professionals necessary? Yes, you will surely need tax and legal advice, but before you negotiate the deal and structure the taxes, it makes sense to determine if the deal you are fighting for is even the deal you want. That's where Pacifica Wealth Advisors come in.

Before: Emotionally prepare for selling your business

For many business owners and entrepreneurs, your business is not only their largest asset, but it is one thing for which you are most proud. Your business often doesn’t just represent a job or a paycheck, but a deep history and legacy. We utilize our financial and psychology experience to help you:

  • Accept selling a business is a process
  • Look at possible outcomes and goals realistically
  • Prepare for the emotional journey of a business sale

During: Looking at all the financial aspects of selling a business

We work with business owners to make sure they are ready to sell, and if so, that they get the most value from what they've created. We work closely with your legal and tax team to construct a deal that makes sense while at the same time helping the business owner transition out and sometimes into a new venture or hobby. 

  • Weigh possibilities of transitioning to a younger generation
  • How to transition yourself & employees
  • Splitting the business
  • Determine if the deal is suitable for you
  • Prepare for capital gain taxes

After: Protecting Assets and Investment management after a business sale

Once the business is sold, we make sure you have a financial plan in place to provide for their needs and desires and to protect their new liquid assets. We consider your financial and life goals and objectives. We can help you diversify your portfolio and make your business sale profit work for you.
