Brian DeFoe authored an article in the Spring 2017 edition of Artisan Spirit magazine titled “‘But I Don’t Ever Intend to Sell.’ Build Value in Preparation for a Potential Sale, Imminent or Hypothetical.” In the article, DeFoe addresses the importance of determining what course of action is most likely to increase the value of an enterprise in the eyes of a potential acquirer, even if the founder plans to keep the business in the family. He also explores ways to build value in preparation for a potential sale, whether it’s actually on the horizon or simply being used as a hypothetical exercise to aid in decision-making.
