Hello, this is Hall T. Martin with the Startup Funding Espresso -- your daily shot of startup funding and investing.
Most exits come from another company buying the startup.
It takes six months to a year to complete a buyout.
Delays often come from the startup not being prepared or ready for the M&A process.
Also, setting valuation and final terms can take substantial time for research and negotiations.
To shorten the time consider the following:
This is basically a gathering process but does take some time.
Beware of competitors in the diligence process as they will have access to your detailed financials and other information.
Understand the interest level from the buyer and what other activities may delay their work on your deal.
Set realistic expectations for how fast things will go.
