Every year, more than fifty thousand deserving entrepreneurs and executives attempt to sell a company they’ve worked tirelessly to build—yet more than 70 percent fail. Why? Because most deals are derailed by hidden dangers that leave both buyers and sellers blindsided.
Broken Handoff: Saving Your Assets is a breakthrough book with rare and remarkably transparent insights into owning, buying, and selling a business. Exposing unexpected pitfalls and revealing hands-on solutions for the mergers and acquisitions process, Broken Handoff delivers tools to beat the odds and broker the deal you want. This definitive guide to business-ownership transactions is required reading for founders, CEOs, venture capitalists, mentors, and moguls.
“Losses from M&A transactions that fall short of expectations represent an opportunity of $3 trillion a year. Broken Handoff clearly addresses the vulnerabilities and shortcomings that cause these failures—and, more importantly, advances viable solutions. This book should be read by everyone anticipating an M&A transaction, funding, or liquidity event.” —James Keyes, former CEO of 7-Eleven and Blockbuster, Horatio Alger recipient
“Smashes through the financial and theoretical rhetoric of M&A success and failures. Filled with insights and lessons learned from the school of hard knocks, this book should be required reading for all parties in the M&A dance—especially those seeking to avoid a postmerger cultural collision and declining productivity.” —Michael Schornstein, startup founder, CMO, advisory board member of CommandHound
