According to Statistics Canada (Dec 2017) there are a total of 1,174,695 businesses sized under 500 employees in Canada and 30,212,670 in the U.S (Small Business Administration Office of Advocacy, 2017). Most of these business owners won't anticipate how difficult it might be to successfully sell or value a company and achieve its maximum worth. A scary figure (that experts may or may not agree on) is that less than 20% of businesses for sale will make it through the diligence process and actually sell.
