Were in one of the longest-running positive M&A cycles in recent history. Even as global economic headwinds develop, corporate and private equity investors continue to experience unparalleled access to capital for potential deals. This suggests that the current wave of US industry consolidations and aggressive private equity investing will continue into the foreseeable future, even as deal volume has slowed from recent peaks. At the same time, with increasing valuations for companies, expectations on sellers are more rigorous, even punishing on surprises. Proactive preparation has become mandatory; processes are more accelerated and data-driven, quality of earnings analysis and sell-side due diligence have become table stakes. Sellers have to respond appropriately and with confidence as experienced buyers move toward a close. Selling your company takes robust planning and discipline. Whether you are divesting the business completely or bringing in a private equity investor to fuel additional growth, the process you develop and follow will play a critical role in creating value for your shareholders and family. Everyone has a lot more data than even five years ago to value your business, including benchmarks and operational data sources. The one piece of information the market doesnt have is your story: what youve done and what the business can do next, setting up a clear and credible case for terms you can justify. The glue that holds it together is that you are clear about buyers expectations, understand your companys value and can evaluate and explain the prospects for your business. Above all, you need to have worked through what you want to accomplish for yourself and your stakeholders with a prospective transaction. To a large extent, this will determine the right exit strategy for you. Many entrepreneurs today are motivated by more outcomes than retirement or a simple wealth event. You may want to consider taking a second bite at the apple. This typically involves structuring an exit that divests a controlling stake but creates a continued role to grow the return on the remaining stake. Whatever path you may be considering, we hope this guide serves as a useful starting point for the conversations you will have with your stakeholders, trusted employees and family, as well as your advisers as you realize the value youve worked hard to create.

While just about everyone is writing about how IT and the businesses it serves need to be transformed, the actual industry answers to both digital and IT transformation remain unclear at best. Are transformational initiatives all about analytics and big data? Or are they about the move to cloud in all its varieties? Support for mobile? More agile ways of working and developing software? Or are they actually all about crafting teams to promote more proactive dialog between the business and IT? The truth is, of course, digital and IT transformation depend on all of the above and more. They also depend on a resilient infrastructure thats easily adapted to changing business priorities without requiring long hours spent on maintenance, updates, and addressing problems of service availability. But making all this work clearly and cohesively is far beyond the purview of almost any solution todaywhether from a software management perspective or from a hardware infrastructure perspective.

Consumerization of IT and the Internet of Things (IoT) are revolutionizing how people live.
