SPECTACULAR ACHIEVEMENT IS ALWAYS PRECEDED BY UNSPECTACULAR PREPARATION
Maximising value and choosing the best exit strategy means understanding all the options available (sale, IPO, MBO, etc.), knowing the potential value of your business and choosing the right time to conduct the transaction. Venero’s Exit Readiness programme helps you explore your liquidity options, clarify your objectives and define the right preparatory course of action for achieving them.
Maximising Value Prior to a Sale
When it comes to business valuation, knowledge is power. Our industry expertise and experience of completing over 50 M&A transactions provides you with a real-world assessment of your business. Our Exit Readiness programme provides you with insight into the potential universe of buyers and an assessment of what will drive value in the future.
Controlling the Timing
The key to a value-maximising liquidity event rests in controlling the process and its timing. Venero’s experienced team of corporate finance advisors can provide a path to understanding what drives value even in the most complex engagements, while our transaction experience provides real-time market perspective to business owners, financial executives, Boards of Directors and investors.

02 | Liquidity Objectives
During a half-day session, we review the business in detail and discuss the objectives (quantitative and qualitative, personal and general) relating to the envisioned liquidity event. We also ask that you rate your business in 20 key areas, which in aggregate indicate how ready your business is for exit.
04 | Growth Routes
Key to maximising value is defining your company’s routes to growth. We assess the merits of each one in the context of adding capital value, ease of implementation and whether it will widen the universe of purchasers. Thereafter, we seek to monitor progress against these opportunities.
06 | Sector M&A Updates
We provide periodic updates on sector activity that may be relevant in the context of your eventual liquidity event. This includes relevant M&A, corresponding valuation multiples and other metrics, market sentiment, trading performance, valuation and strategy updates for key listed peers.
07 | Sale Readiness Recommendations
We highlight areas of the business we believe may require addressing in advance of a liquidity event. We present a series of recommendations organised by importance, focused both on enhancing the capital value of the business and on ensuring it is ready for sale when the time comes.
08 | Bridge Funding for Pre-Exit Growth Acceleration
Optionally, we can help you secure "bridge equity funding" between €5 million and €25 million from a bespoke network of investors. The purpose of the funding is to accelerate your company's growth during the 1-2 years leading up to a sale and is subject to your company exhibiting certain characteristics that are fundamental to our investors' risk management and portfolio construction philosophy.
