The information technology sector is rapidly moving toward a service-based industry with software giants like Microsoft and IBM recently prioritizing services over products. As owners of IT service businesses adjust to rapid change, many are looking to sell or get acquired, but the path to maximizing their return is not always clear for these entrepreneurs.
In her new book, Get Acquired for Millions: A Roadmap for Technology Service Providers to Maximize Company Value, IT veteran and Channel Partner Advisor Linda Rose delivers a straightforward guide to help readers discover their path to growing company value so they can sell their IT services business for its full potential.
Based upon her 30 years of expertise in IT consulting and services, and after successfully selling three IT service businesses, Linda Rose wrote Get Acquired for Millions to serve business owners looking to sell quickly and for those eyeing to sell within 1-5 years.
Get Acquired for Millions includes over 100 tips and tactics for sale with insight from sellers and buyers. Linda has also created “8 Value Maximizers” and a Value Maximizer Assessment Tool™ to assist readers with actionable steps to grow the value of their company.
Linda Rose takes entrepreneurs and channel partners through her unique exit strategies to find answers to questions like:
- When is the right time to sell?
- What is my company worth?
- Who will find the most value in my company?
- Can I sell the company myself?
- What do I need to prepare in advance?
- What can I do now to increase my company value?
“The technology service provider and IT markets are hot, and if a buyer presents herself or himself tomorrow, you will want to be in the position to earn the greatest valuation for your company,” said Linda Rose.
