John Higgins, MExit cofounder, strategic business advisor, and scaling up acquisition specialist, shares his wisdom gained in over 90 acquisitions he's made over the years growing billion-dollar companies. John explains how buyers think and what they look for that sellers need to know. Buyers are looking for growth opportunities, and companies that are strategically positioned to grow, have a team that has proven they can execute, have demonstrated some traction in the growth opportunities and have the systems and disciplines in place that mean the growth is not dependent on the ownership. How does your business growth ability stack up for you to demand a premium?
