Advantages of Selling Your IT Business Privately with ITExitStrategy

Selling a business can be complicated, but as a business owner, you have more options than you may realize. Choosing the wrong approach could have drastic financial consequences for both you, the owner, and your business.

A private sale with ITExitStrategy is understandably the easiest way to exit your IT business. There are many advantages to opting for this exit strategy.


  • Can generate significant revenue
    Yes! You are in control of what you determine is an equitable arrangement for selling your IT business.
  • No brokerage fees
    Paying commission to the broker leaves the seller feeling discontented as a big chunk of the payment gets disbursed to the broker. Starting at 10%, they may go up to 15% of the whole amount which transforms into a lot of money. When you take the responsibility of selling your business privately, you effortlessly save this money which can be reinvested into other ventures. Thus you can earn a higher return on your investment and diversify your finances. → Check out how much you will save with our brokerage fee savings calculator »
  • Focused Attention
    Brokers are simultaneously working on a number of projects and it becomes difficult for them to pay individual attention to each sale. At times, the small business is neglected and remains unsold for a long time.
  • Quick Response time
    As the owner of the business, you know the company inside-out and are quick in responding to queries from prospective buyers. You can provide instant information on all aspects of the business, whereas an agent will have to consult you and then return to the buyer which can delay the process and lead to loss of interest from the buyer.
  • Flexibility to Make Changes
    Since you control the negotiations, you are free to make changes according to your needs and requirements without the worry of breaking a contract.

Demystifying the disadvantages

  • Requires suitable buyers.
    True – and ITExitStrategy offers vetted, targeted buyers who have expert knowledge of the IT business and assign a high value to your company.

Provide IT Business Owners With An Exit Strategy

Providing IT Business Owners With An Exit Strategy

ITExitStrategy came about through the experiences of its members witnessing other IT Small Business owners leaving the industry for a variety of reasons over the last few decades. There were a variety of reasons for the departure; whether retirement, exhaustion with the stress related to the IT industry, selection of another career path, another job opportunity, or a myriad of other factors.

The members of ITExitStrategy also witnessed that in the vast majority of situations the owners of these small businesses never realized any remuneration for the company they had built. Our group completely understands the Blood, Sweat, and Tears that these owners had invested in their respective companies. As an aggregate, the members of ITExitStrategy have approximately 100 years of IT business experience. Additionally, there wasn’t usually a smooth transition for the clients involved.

We discussed the situation and decided there was an opportunity for a Win-Win-Win situation.

  • First, the business owner that dedicated his or herself to building the company would actually receive remuneration for the long hours and stress associated with an IT service provider, no matter the size of the firm.
  • Second existing IT Small Business Owners looking to expand their businesses have the opportunity to acquire an established IT Services company.
  • Third and an important concern for all the exiting business owners we have encountered, he/she can be involved in the transition of the clients he/she has serviced and thus be confident that the people he/she has worked and established relationships with will be professionally supported.

We also realized that many small business owners within any industry at times are convinced that business acquisitions are just for the “big guys.” That doesn’t have to be the case. A business owner has an opportunity to earn revenue from the IT Small Business that he/she has built.

Our goal at ITExitStrategy is to realize the Win-Win-Win situation for all involved during a business and client servicing transition.
