Listen up, if you are really serious about selling your company for the highest price, then you really need to understand what a Quality of Earnings Report is (also known as Q of E). I didn’t do this for the sale of my previous company, and wish I had.
I didn’t hire an M&A advisor, but in hindsight it was probably one of the worst mistakes I made! Why didn’t I engage an advisor? I didn’t want to pay out any more of my proceeds and I was already paying a good chunk in legal fees.
