Selling your business is a personal undertaking that you will likely only do once. When selling your business to Trek you will work directly with the principal decision makers, be able to design terms that meet your needs (e.g. all cash, retaining equity, longer transition plan) and have the opportunity to see your business continue to grow after your transition.
