The best time to sell your business depends on several factors. In general, it’s better to sell when your business is performing well, and revenue is in a growth phase. You should consider the market conditions and the overall economic climate, whether it’s a seller’s market or a buyer’s market. It might also be wise to consider macro- economic factors such as industry trends, interest rates and tax policy changes.

In addition, a buyer usually has their own ideal timeline and factors to consider, which may not align with yours. Ultimately, it is best to sell your business before you get to a point where you “need to sell”, as this often can result in a less competitive environment, and reduced terms and valuation.

Every transaction is unique and follows its own  timeline. However, transactions usually fall within a certain range depending on the type of transaction. Most often, traditional processes can take up to 15 months. For a limited sale, the time frame might be between six and twelve months. An exclusive negotiation typically skips some of the steps of a traditional or limited auction so that it can be completed sooner, which means it can range anywhere from a few months to six months. It’s also best to consider the market and economic conditions. In a highly active M&A market, buyers are often considering or executing multiple transactions, which can result in longer closing times.
