9. Increase the probability and price of an M&A event


More than 90% of exits are achieved through a company or asset sale—often early in a company’s evolution. M&A buyers, often public companies, will either drastically discount or totally avoid a young company with weak financial, administrative, and operational management because the integration pain and clean-up cost is too high. A part-time senior CFO can minimize the discount, friction, and transaction pain, thereby yielding a higher return for all.
