With the 2030s depression quickly approaching, business leaders have a lot of important and difficult decisions to make as they prepare for what is ahead. One of the most important questions on the minds of many is whether to sell their business ahead of the next economic depression or carry on and lead their company through it. No matter what your decision is, ITR Economics is here to help.

Want to Sell Your Business? Here is How to Best Plan Your Exit

If you have already decided to sell your business, the next big question you must answer is when the best time is to plan your exit to make the most profit.

Now that we are nearly halfway through the 2020s, and with several key industries currently in a recession, now is the time to plan your exit strategy. So, how can ITR Economics help?

One of our best tools for helping you make the right decision at the right time is our new Financial Resilience service. This new offering gives you a fully customized blueprint of your business’s expected performance over the next 10 years.

This analysis will be completed by our Executive Team. We will review your company's past performance and response to previous periods of economic decline, evaluate the future of your industry and markets, and outline the various opportunities and risks your business will encounter in the coming years.

If you are still set on selling your business after we review our findings with you, we can help you determine the best time to sell.
