Press Release: Uncovering the Secrets so Business Owners Can Exit Like A Winner!




Tampa, Florida, May 17th, 2022: As millions of business owners near retirement, they grapple with the daunting challenge of deciding when and how to successfully sell their, usually, largest single asset.

A 2021 IBBA survey indicated retirement still leads as the number one reason business owners choose to exit their companies, and burnout is also now a major reason (27%) for selling one’s company. The number of owners citing health issues (15%) is also higher than in previous surveys, suggesting the pandemic has taken a heavy toll on business owners.

According to a recent Exit Planning Institute survey, some 4.5 million companies representing $10 trillion in market value will transition over the next decade. Of those 4.5 million, surprisingly 53% also stated they have given minimal attention to determining how and when to exit.

Edward Valaitis’ new book, Exit Like A Winner, has achieved the #1 Amazon New Release status in the categories of Mergers & Acquisitions, Private Equity, and Corporate Law. Written in a fresh, easy-to-read style, it alternates between storytelling and advice-giving chapters.

His book directly addresses why this is a very difficult process, provides do and don’ts, and answers the two key questions of when and how to sell a business. His book pursues a holistic perspective which acknowledges that the strong optimism that drives many entrepreneurs into business can become a weakness leading to denial or blind spots when the time comes to separate from the business. In this book, Valaitis blueprints the personal and professional considerations required to make a smart decision as to the right time to sell.

“Too many founders go to their graves and leave their businesses up for grabs, leaving their families unable to harvest the wealth from their many years of blood, sweat, and tears. Others fall for the single unsolicited offer trap and leave too much money on the table. I realized no one has written a book that directly and effectively deals with these crucial issues founders face. I could sleep another night knowing that this tragic loss has to stop.” – Edward Valaitis

Unlike most business books, this “how-to” manual is a captivating readable eye-opener. Valaitis is deeply vulnerable on this journey as he helps business owners identify and remove their blind spots so they can make the best decisions for their unique circumstances.

Private equity groups and strategic buyers have hundreds of merger and acquisition transactions under their belt, while most business owners will only sell once or twice in their lifetime. These odds greatly favor the professional acquirer rather than the business owner. This book will help the business owner level the playing field so they can truly Exit Like a Winner!
