We’re in one of the longest-running positive M&A cycles in recent history. Even as global economic headwinds develop, corporate and private equity investors continue to experience unparalleled access to capital for potential deals. This suggests that the current wave of US industry consolidations and aggressive private equity investing will continue into the foreseeable future, even as deal volume has slowed from recent peaks. At the same time, with increasing valuations for companies, expectations on sellers are more rigorous, even punishing on surprises. Proactive preparation has become mandatory; processes are more accelerated and data-driven, quality of earnings analysis and sell-side due diligence have become table stakes. Sellers have to respond appropriately and with confidence as experienced buyers move toward a close. Selling your company takes robust planning and discipline. Whether you are divesting the business completely or bringing in a private equity investor to fuel additional growth, the process you develop and follow will play a critical role in creating value for your shareholders and family. Everyone has a lot more data than even five years ago to value your business, including benchmarks and operational data sources. The one piece of information the market doesn’t have is your story: what you’ve done and what the business can do next, setting up a clear and credible case for terms you can justify. The glue that holds it together is that you are clear about buyers’ expectations, understand your company’s value and can evaluate and explain the prospects for your business. Above all, you need to have worked through what you want to accomplish for yourself and your stakeholders with a prospective transaction. To a large extent, this will determine the right exit strategy for you. Many entrepreneurs today are motivated by more outcomes than retirement or a simple wealth event. You may want to consider taking a “second bite at the apple.” This typically involves structuring an exit that divests a controlling stake but creates a continued role to grow the return on the remaining stake. Whatever path you may be considering, we hope this guide serves as a useful starting point for the conversations you will have with your stakeholders, trusted employees and family, as well as your advisers as you realize the value you’ve worked hard to create.

Jusqu’à présent, les améliorations du datacenter se sont limitées à la réduction des coûts et à des solutions ponctuelles. La consolidation des serveurs, le Cloud computing, la virtualisation et l’implémentation de stockage Flash ont contribué à réduire la prolifération des serveurs, ainsi que les coûts de personnel et d’installations associés. Regroupant ressources de calcul, de stockage et de réseau au sein d’une même solution, les systèmes convergés se révèlent particulièrement efficaces dans la baisse des dépenses de personnel et de fonctionnement. Ces systèmes définis par logiciel (software-defined) exigent peu d’interventions humaines. Le code intégré dans le logiciel configure le matériel et automatise de nombreux processus autrefois manuels, ce qui réduit considérablement le risque d’erreurs humaines. Ensemble, ces technologies ont permis aux entreprises d’améliorer progressivement les processus et stratégies d’engagement client et de prestation de services.
