as you fund, scale and sell your business
As CEO, you’re expected to deliver a major shift in valuation. The truth is that 80% of businesses who enter a sale process fail to sell (Forbes) – demonstrating that the majority of CEOs do not achieve those expectations.

Steve came to Bean Partners looking to sell his business for a fair value to the right buyer who would take care of his team. He had been told his business could be sold at a multiple between a typical range of 8-12x EBITDA, Bean Partners sold it for a multiple of 21x EBITDA.
“Despite the words of warnings from friends, CEO colleagues and other advisors, about the perils and stresses of the process - those stresses never materialised. I honestly believe that this is due to the way Bean integrated themselves into the process, proactively navigating me and taking real ownership of all key aspects.”
