8 Drivers that will Increase the Value of Your Business


What is The Switzerland Structure?

And how will it impact the value of your business?

Case Study: Ignoring the Switzerland Structure could cost you millions!

Meet Rick Day, he owned a telecommunications business, Daycom Systems which he built to $26 million in revenue over 17 years. It was a successful and well performing company but when Rick decided to sell the business, there was one big problem - the acquirers said that the company was over reliant on one supplier.


When acquirers see risk, they will always try to discount the value of the business. In Rick's case, they did this in the way they structured the deal. Find out what happened...

THE 8 CORE DRIVERS

A lot of entrepreneurs assume their industry and size will determine the value of their company. In fact, there are actually eight other factors that impact value. After analysing more than 60,000 businesses, we’ve discovered getting these eight factors right can lead to acquisition offers that are more than twice the industry average. Likewise, we have seen companies negatively impacted because of a weakness in one or more of these eight areas.

hub and spoke

There are businesses in every industry that outperform their peers. They are not focused on being the biggest, their measure of success is company value.

When shareholders invest in the stock market they expect those shares to grow in value. These are assets that give you options — you can choose sell at a higher value and enjoy the financial rewards, or you can hold onto them if you believe they will grow further, enjoying the passive income they provide in the form of dividends. 

The same applies to your company. After all, you are most likely the primary shareholder, or even the only shareholder.

Your role is to grow the value of your company to give yourself options.

Imagine if you could:

  • Double the value of your business by implementing the right drivers.
  • Step out of the day-to-day because you've designed your business to run without you.
  • Exit your business for a premium because it's 'built to sell'.
