  5. Changing technology.
  6. Get estate in order.
  7. Not interested in investing additional long-term capital.
  8. Children do not want to enter the family business.
  9. Under capitalized.
  10. Largest accounts in financial difficulty.
  11. Bank unwilling to renew credit lines.
  12. Supplier problems.
  13. Staff problems.
  14. Customer habits changing.
