Exit Barriers

All the factors that make it difficult for a company to end loss-making business activities. Exit barriers may include the following:

  1. Social factors: required procedures regarding layoffs and the resistance of employees who are in danger of losing their jobs present very important exit barriers.
  2. Strongly specialized assets: the liquidation value of a strongly specialized machine is often significantly lover than the utility value.
  3. Connection of a product to one or more other products: for example through the collective use of means of production (a building or a machine).
  4. Emotional factors: such as attachment to a certain product by the owner or management.
  5. Government support: support for companies in trouble may present an exit barrier.
