Update from the Team

The main reason many kiwi business owners don’t exit is that they are scared of what to do next. But as we age we tend to have more money than time – and how we spend that time becomes all important.

EndVision Story

After 20 years of buying, starting and selling businesses for ourselves, the EndVision team came together to share this expertise with other business owners.
 
The typical business sale process does very little to help a business get a high price. It focuses on “educating” sellers to have “realistic” expectations about what their business is worth. Unfortunately this creates an environment where businesses are sold at less than optimum value. It happens. Day in and day out.
 
We see so many people who have spent a lifetime creating their business. We believe they deserve more.

Success Story

Lisa Martin had grown a very successful accountancy business from the ground up. It was very exciting, but there was a nagging doubt as to whether the business was becoming more valuable. Lisa went through the Diagnostic with EndVision.

Tips on Increasing Business Value

REVENUE MODEL
The most valuable revenue is recurring contractual revenue. The least valuable is one-off random sales. Most businesses sit somewhere in the middle. The key here is to understand that shifting even some of your revenue up the scale will have a strong positive effect on your business value.
Maybe you can add on monthly service charges or a product that is consumable, or maybe you can get a longstanding customer to sign a contract or you can target a new market that has a recurring spend. We believe that every business can move at least some of their revenue into “subscription”. If you don’t, your opposition will. The millennial mindset is geared towards it. It is often the simplest way to disrupt your industry. But the point is, it makes your business more valuable.
