When making profit plans, most owners work only on a day-to-day basis and give no thought to an exit or succession. Many are unaware that it is possible to work on the profit and capital value at the same time. Here the authors show the owner how to achieve maximum income during his/her stewardship of the business, while planning for a sizeable business asset through a sale. Using case studies and detailed guidance, the book provides practical advice on how to create and improve capital value through various means, such as leadership, people, culture and branding.
