Selling your small business?

You've built up your business with years of hard work and now it's time to reap the rewards. If selling your business is a part of your succession plan, then we want to talk to you. 

Class5’s mandate is to finance the buyout of small businesses, guide them through a transition period where new business systems and leaders are installed, and oversee the operation of those businesses going forward.  

Our approach is designed to minimize the impact of the transition, retaining the team and the model that made the business a success in the first place.

Small businesses are the backbone of the Canadian economy, with over a million operating across the country. However, as the baby boom generation approaches retirement this ecosystem is facing significant change. A recent CIBC report estimated that 300,000 small businesses in Canada will face a transition of some sort (generational bequest, sale or closure) in the next 5 years.

We may be the buyer you are looking for. Contact us for a confidential discussion about your options with Class5
