More Business Owners Consider Selling
As recent figures suggest that January could see the highest deal value recorded in the first month of a year since 2000; additional data has suggested that over the next two years, a third of global businesses are planning a sale.
According to the 2014 Global Corporate Divestment Survey, which questioned 700 corporate executives; 80 percent of participants are open to offers for “prized assets” whilst 54 percent would consider a full sale of their business.
In addition, the data from the survey has also suggested that 34 percent of the corporate executives who participated would be willing to consider a carve out, whilst 14 percent would consider an IPO.
