Succession Planning For Family Businesses in the Aftermarket
According to the Small Business Administration, about 90% of American businesses are family owned or controlled. Ranging in size from two-person partnerships to Fortune 500 firms, these businesses generate about half of the nation’s Gross National Product.
Family businesses face a unique set of management challenges stemming from the overlap of family and business issues.
Only 40% of family owned businesses survive to the second generation, 12% to the third and 3% to the fourth.
Family owned businesses account for 60% of total U.S. employment, 78% of all new jobs and 65% of wages paid.
Among the companies listed on the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index, 34 percent are family businesses.
Nearly 40% of family businesses in America will be passing the reigns to the next generation over the next 5 years.
There are 1.2 million husband and wife teams running companies today.

Who is going to own and manage the business?
How will ownership and management be transferred?

A proper business succession seeks to alleviate or lessen these issues by setting up a smooth transition between the current business owner and the future...
