The largest transfer of small businesses in history is coming.
The Baby Boomer generation has hit the age of retirement and owns over half of the total number of businesses in the U.S.
Based on verifiable public and private research, Capitalize Network has estimated that the current number of US businesses with revenues of $3M-$50M whose owners are age 55+ is approximately 552,000. That number is expected to increase to 719,000 in 2021 and to 806,000 in 2026.
These facts, underscoring the “aging” population of business ownership, crystalize the essential need for hundreds of thousands of businesses to be transitioned from their current ownership status to alternative custody structures in the near-term. However, the most recent US Census Data reflects only 29,000 businesses experience a sales transaction each year.
With this dilemma becoming ever more acute, it is critical that business owners begin evaluating transition opportunities, so as to preserve their long-term financial independence. If not addressed, it is predicted that this unparalleled set of circumstances could trigger wide-spread personal equity losses in the entrepreneurial marketplace.
In response, Capitalize Network has analyzed the current market conditions and developed a proprietary methodology to address this national supply and demand phenomenon. By applying its transition-oriented “Remodel>Stage>Sell™” concept in support maximizing the value of its client companies, Capitalize Network can ensure the greatest probabilities of creating a successful sales transaction.
