  2. Second, when preparing for sale, ExitAdviser’s Business Valuation and Sales Memorandum tools take care of the baseline price, creating your Memorandum of Sale document and the basic review of your company, both internally and externally, as doing business in Chicago.
  3. Moving on to the most tricky and crucial part — marketing your business for sale — ExitAdviser will help you to create your sale listing along with a custom Landing Page, so it's easy for buyers to reach you in Chicago. Behind the scenes, ExitAdviser is connected with Google Ads, the industry's most effective advertising platform.
  4. Finally, closing the deal, where negotiations, processing of legal documents, and due diligence will take place.
