Cape Coral, Florida (PRWEB) September 2, 2008
Sales Gravy Press, a Cape Coral, Florida-based publisher of sales and business books, announced the release of the third edition of Exit Strategy: Maximizing The Value Of Your Business.
Authored by Thomas W. Lyons, founding partner and principal of Faelon Partners, Ltd., a Twin Cities-based mergers and acquisitions (M&A) firm, Exit Strategy demystifies the complex process of selling a business. In doing so, Lyons illustrates the importance of an exit strategy, personal preparation, and high-level professional representation by an experienced M&A advisor for every business owner. Now in its third printing, Tom Lyon's, Exit Strategies has helped thousands of business owners wade through and understand the complexities and the emotions involved in selling a business.
"We are thrilled to be working with Tom Lyons," said Jeb Blount, president and CEO of Sales Gravy Press. "Tom is a master at helping entrepreneurs develop strategies and answer the tough questions required to exit their businesses successfully. Exit Strategy shows how important planning, preparation and timing are to the sale of a business."
"Demand for Exit Strategy's timeless principles has taken root and more people than ever are asking these important questions," said Lyons, who has bought and sold businesses personally and professionally for more than 30 years. "For most business owners, this is an emotional and sometimes overwhelming event. Many business owners have built a company or owned it for years, even decades. They are at it night and day, 24/7--thinking about the business, cultivating customer relationships, and solving problems. They eat it, drink it and sleep it. It is no surprise, then, that selling the business is an emotional, complex process. The principles in this book are designed to help business owners avoid costly mistakes and exit business with less stress and more wealth."
In addition to Lyons' own writing, he invited four respected professionals to contribute to chapters describing the roles of the critical advisors, including: Personal financial planner; Trusts and estate attorney; Accountant (CPA); Transaction (M&A) attorney. The final chapter--about life after the sale--was written with contributions from Richard Christison, co-founder and former principal of the advertising firm, Coleman & Christison, Inc.
"Exit Strategy helps business owners think more in depth and answer critical questions about their businesses and their exit strategy," said Blount. "This is the first book of its kind, and we're excited about publishing it, and look forward to publishing Mr. Lyons's next book which is already in the works."
Exit Strategy is available by contacting Faelon Partners, Ltd., Sales Gravy Press, Amazon, Barnes and Noble and bookstores.
