From the Desk of Ryan Binkley, President & CEO of Generational Equity – May 2018

By Generational Group


Hello and welcome to our May 2018 eNewsletter!  

Attendees at our educational exit planning conferences often tell us that one of the most intriguing topics we cover is the various forms of deal structure, specifically, the idea of a “partial sale” to an equity firm. 

Our lead article in this month’s eNL covers this idea in great detail and I thought I would share it with you since it is an optimal form of deal structure for many of our clients.

Most come to us believing that only an outright, 100% sale of their business would be best for them. They have no idea how a partial sale can actually be far more financially lucrative for them and their families.

I hope you enjoy reading our article on the benefits of a partial sale.
