Skrypnyk Group Interview on Family Business Succession Planning & Strategy: Part 2

We have previously discussed how business owners often begin their businesses due to their love of creating something. There is an element of attachment and control that is naturally felt towards your business and it can be hard to give up some of this control. Business transition will happen at some point. A properly planned transition is imperative if you wish to maximize the value that is obtained while making the transition as smooth as possible.

In the second of three video clips, Wayne Skrypnyk discusses various factors that will impact the ultimate result of the business transition. The senior or departing generation has its own set of things to consider. What is the right timing to exit the business? What will the transition mean for their financial retirement? What will they do if they are not running their business? Sometimes this generation needs some help in understanding and realizing what the rest of life outside of work will be able to offer them and their family. What is it that they really want their life to look like?

The junior or incumbent generation will face challenges as they build the business throughout their lifetime. This generation is also important to the business transition process. Before the senior generation is willing to transfer ownership, the importance of the next generation in demonstrating leadership is extremely important. Both generations need to communicate in order to understand the common goals of the successful transition.

ONTARIO FIELD CROP REPORT – April 19, 2018

The 2018 season is obviously off to a slow start following a significant storm system that brought freezing rain, ice pellets and snow to much of the province on the April 14th weekend. As of April 18th, it’s easy to find fields that are still snow covered (Figure 1). The weather and soil conditions will eventually turn more favourable and when it does field activities will begin at a rapid pace. The following is an overview of where crop conditions are at so far and management considerations for the upcoming 2018 crop.

There is snow on the ground again this morning. Generally the winter wheat crop looks good. Cold temperatures persist so growth has been limited. Some nitrogen has been applied and most of the red clover is on the wheat.
