Frequently asked questions about the journey for business owners looking to sell and what it’s like to cooperate with Aventis Advisors.
Selling at the right time is a crucial determining factor in what kind of deal we’ll close, and it’ll impact how long it actually takes to sell.
It usually takes about 6 to 12 months to sell a company. But, how long it takes depends on a few factors, including if you already have buyers lined up, the quality of your documentation and data, cycles in financial markets and in your industry.
Your business means a lot to you – we understand the time and effort you’ve put into getting it where it is today. We work hard to ensure that every avenue to give you an attractive valuation is explored.
Some of the ways investors value your company include: looking at the stock market to see what similar companies are worth and what cash flow your business is expected to generate in the future. They also look at how much investors have paid for similar companies in the past.

But it’ll mostly depend on your involvement after the sale. The new owner might want you to stay on for 6 months to 3 years for the transition period – then you can stay on as an advisor. Or you can choose to cut ties completely and retire or start another business (subject to the non-compete clause, of course).
All this is determined in the negotiations and put in a contract, so you won’t have any surprises after the deal is closed.
