Take the money — and stay – Partial sales provide owners with options
Abstract: Selling a business doesn’t have to be an either-or proposition.

A partial sale may also be a good way to gain valuable strategic advice and receive a capital infusion. This article describes two types of partial sales, along with the benefits and potential pitfalls of such a sale.
