This survey — conducted by The Middle Market Owners Forum (a non-profit organization) and West Coast university — is intended to help you start the process of self evaluation needed to successfully sell your business. The questions that follow are the type of questions a prospective buyer will ask you. Of course, during due diligence, a prospective buyer will ask you many more questions in an effort to assess a reasonable value of your firm.
If you are the owner of a middle-market company, please fill out the survey below. Once we’ve aggregated your responses with those of other owners, we’ll send a copy of our report to you. You will be able to compare your firm’s readiness for sale to that of other firms. Thank you for participating.
