Selling your business, or a majority stake in it, can be complex and challenging. So, at the outset, one of our objectives has been to make the transition of ownership as straightforward and as transparent as possible.
You’ll find that our approach is to engage in a fair and reasonable process that helps both parties meet their respective goals with minimal disruption to the business. For some that will mean immediate retirement, others will want to continue on and train a successor, and still others will want to dig in and grow the business.
At Market Maker Agriculture we categorize our investments into cornerstone and tuck-in companies. Cornerstone companies are standalone operating businesses with a strong enough infrastructure to support not just its core business but also potential complementary businesses, which we call tuck-in companies.
