Dubai, United Arab Emirates -Monday, May 22nd 2017 [ ME NewsWire ] Business owners often dream of selling their business, reducing their workload and enjoying their financial freedom. Most business owners have the necessary funds to retire, but simply can't reduce their involvement out of fear their business will fail without them. Such concerns are not unfounded for small to medium enterprises (SME's) as the owners are critical to the business. As a result, investors tend to avoid businesses with owners that wish to retire, due to the perceived risk of losing goodwill, or they tend to expect a large discount on the valuation for assuming such a risk.

The return of Jobs in 1997 drove Apple's turnaround, and proper succession planning contributed to Apple's success today, with Q1 2017 quarterly profits of $17.9 Billion. Fo ... Read more »
