Getting Acquired

  • Rick Webb


Let’s start this chapter with more than the usual caveats. Ignore this chapter completely if you don’t want to sell. Good for you. Whether to sell your company or not is a deeply personal decision. It is up to you and your partners. We’ve had an arc through this book of a certain type of company plan—one in which you create and grow a great company in order to sell it one day so that you may reap the reward of your years of effort. I don’t think there is anything immoral about this plan, but it is not for everyone. Your company will change after a sale. Selling your company does not come without a cost.
