- Outright Sale
- Debt Recapitalization
- Royalty Transaction
Depending on your objectives, managerial bench-strength, growth prospects and stage of growth, each of these liquidity options could be the right solution for your franchisor business.

Download this white paper to obtain an overview of these options to help you when considering a major liquidity event.
