Exit planning is simply good business strategy.

Every advisor who works with business owners can benefit from understanding how they fit into EPI’s Value Acceleration MethodologyTM, which illustrates the mutual benefits of making succession planning and exit planning part of the conversation early.

You are the advisor that can change the outcome of the middle market. EPI is your partner to move from big idea to game changer.

An owner who is “ready” with an attractive business greatly increases the odds that the business will survive a transition of hands. The question is, how ready is the marketplace to succeed and what can you do about it?
