Many people prefer to continue their business as opposed to selling it outright.
Here are the options that you have when you have formed a business entity: You can continue the business with the succession plan, you can sell it outright, or you can do nothing. If you do nothing, you'll probably lose the business because there is no successor identified.
If you want to continue the business
If you would like to continue the business, you have two critical ways of doing so: either by way of a cross-purchase agreement, or via an entity purchase agreement. But no matter which one of these options you intend to use, it's important to have the business's value assessed, and to determine who the successor in interest will be.
