2016 business owner survey final

BEI 2016 Business Owner Survey


WHAT WE LEARNED

In the two years since BEI’s last business-owner survey, we have noted significant changes in how owners have approached their business exits. Generally, business owners’ responses identified three themes:

  • Most business owners want to exit their businesses within the next 10 years.
  • Most business owners believe that their exits will occur because of planning and action items they implement.
  • Most business owners have not created a concrete, written plan for their exits.

79% OF BUSINESS OWNERS PLAN TO EXIT THEIR BUSINESSES IN THE NEXT 10 YEARS.

75% WOULD EXIT TODAY IF THEIR FINANCIAL SECURITY WERE ASSURED.

100% OF BUSINESS OWNERS WILL LEAVE THEIR BUSINESS.... WHETHER PLANNED OR OTHERWISE
