Many founders are unaware of the available options when selling their business. They often assume that an outright sale is the only choice and overlook other possibilities.
One alternative is a partial sale, where a founder sells a portion of their business while retaining an ongoing equity stake. This allows them to unlock some of the company’s value, de-risk their personal situation, maintain a meaningful shareholding, and benefit from the accelerated growth journey. It offers an additional “pay day” upon exit as part of Pemba’s “two pay day” structure.
A partial sale can de-risk personal finances while keeping founders closely involved and in control of their business. With the support of an experienced growth investor like Pemba, owners can make bolder strategic decisions and achieve accelerated revenue and profit growth.
By partnering with Pemba, founders have the potential to achieve significant revenue and profit growth beyond what they could accomplish independently, resulting in a substantial second pay day upon the future sale of the group.
