Please understand the odds of creating a remarkable business that is valued by investors, acquirers and the stock market are very very low. As an example of value creation:
Here are some facts, According to Mergers & Acquisitions magazine there were 5900 US deals in 2011 with a value of $10m or more. The total number of US firms from the 2008 US Census data is around 27.3 million. There are only around 15,000 public companies and so most of the 27.3m are private companies. Therefore if you are an owner of a private company the probability of selling out for $10m or above is 1 in 4500!
The Value Gap
These facts then lead us to the Value Gap. That is the difference between the value TODAY and the potential FUTURE value of your business if it is scaled successfully.
We want to help you close that gap.
We believe the odds can be beaten, changed dramatically in your favour by the insertion of Magic Years thinking. This requires you as the owner to think big. To think like the Big Boys! To understand the difference between Growth and Scaling.
Scaling a business is not the same as growing a business. Scaling implies alignment, control, predictability, fast but with safety.
