In part two of the incredible exit of Mike Jackness’s Colorit, we are hearing his first-hand perspective on what the process is like from the side of the seller. Mike honestly and openly goes through the process, from the letter of intent through due diligence, all the way to the handoff and transition. He reveals the humbling moments, the surprises, and things he would do differently.

This episode is for anyone thinking about being on the seller or the buyer side of the acquisition process. Ending your involvement in a business can happen more easily and smoothly if you are in a good position and absolutely prepared no matter what. The takeaway to all business owners is put your business in that position from inception in case of an eventual sale.

  • Mike’s background and how he found himself in the coloríng business.
  • How the due diligence process went and how in many ways it was harder work than running the actual business.
  • The things that came up during the process that were surprising and how to approach number discrepancies in due diligence.
  • The value of using a professional firm for due diligence.
  • Why early preparation is critical.
  • The creation and review of the asset purchase agreement and how it went for Mike.
  • The small things he relayed to the buyer in order to make the transition smoother.
  • Why in-person meetings are very important during the hand-off.
  • The importance of doing everything you can to facilitate while still creating limits to your involvement in the process.
  • What’s next for Mike.
