Can you find a buyer you trust?

The pandemic has put a spotlight on just how essential home care is and there are a lot of buyers in the market. But finding the right buyer isn’t easy. The reality is, many buyers care more about profit than about the integrity of your business.

Can you find a buyer you trust and still get the payout you need? If not, what will happen to your business? Will the new owner jeopardize what you built? And what will happen to your loyal team?

Elevate what you built with EO

You want a buyer who has all the right skills, can pay a good price, and will carry on the integrity of your business.

Did you ever consider that your best buyer could be your team? When you sell to your employees, you can feel confident that the next owner will elevate what you built. Employee ownership unlocks a win-win exit strategy:

  • Retire on your own terms
  • Receive a good price for your life’s work
  • Guarantee your legacy by selling to a buyer who knows your business
  • Thank your loyal team by setting them up for success

What business owners are saying about selling to their employees

“It’s a very good option for any business owner because it allows you to step away with a sigh of relief that what you implanted in whatever community you are in, can still survive.”

“[My business partner and I] were concerned about what would happen when we eventually retire. Employees are our only asset, really. [Employee ownership] is the perfect way to keep them engaged.”

“[Employee ownership is a way of] reaching into our values and living those in a powerful way. When I started this [business], I didn’t know about employee owned cooperatives or the idea of it. But the vision is so aligned with where we wanted to be from the very beginning.”
