Anyone who is planning on selling their business in the next 5 years. The dental M&A market is white hot and there are more buyers than sellers creating a sellers’ market!  Deal structures have evolved rapidly, and sellers are weighing much more than cash at close driven by a multiple of EBITDA. The majority of deals today involve partnerships and cashflows over periods of two to five years, so it is important that you frame your business in a manner that maximizes the value you bring.
