Kidsons Impey survey.
More than a third of managers in fast-growing small and medium-sized companies have little idea what their business is worth, according to a survey by national accountancy firm Kidsons Impey. But 43% of respondents said that they were very likely or quite likely to sell out to another company. Only 3% thought it very likely that they would seek a stockmarket flotation, while 35% said they were “not at all likely” to float. Only 6% said that their business stays in the family – a trend labelled by kidsons as “the rise of the single generation business”.
