43% of small business sales had an intentional and proactive exit strategy. The remainder weren’t planned.
The quarterly International Business Brokers Association (IBBA) and M&A Source Market Pulse Survey was created to gain an accurate understanding of the market conditions for businesses being sold in Main Street (values $0-$2MM) and the lower middle market (values $2MM -$50MM). The national survey was conducted with the intent of providing a valuable resource to business owners and their advisors. The IBBA and M&A Source present the Market Pulse Survey with the support of the Pepperdine Private Capital Markets Project and Pepperdine Graziadio School of Business and Management.
