In the fall of 2017, the Business Development Bank of Canada completed a study on business transitions.

“41% of all entrepreneurs are likely to leave their businesses within the next five years and 52% of them expect to sell or transfer their business outside the family.”

“Entrepreneurs looking to exit are slowing down too soon: 71% are reluctant to take risks to improve their business performance and 52% have little interest in expanding their business, which may cause them to sell below market value.”
