Critical Topics for Owners and Their Advisors
Business owners start out to create their future but soon get so caught up in the day-to-day that they lose their focus on value creation. They are too often unprepared when the time comes to sell. Owners need to understand what drives business value – what a buyer will pay – then get laser-focused on making decisions that will help them reach the sale price they want or need.
In the next 5 – 10 years, nearly 4 million businesses will be up for sale. How will they separate themselves from the noise? How will they maximize the value of THEIR business, their life’s work?
As an owner (and future seller), you will walk away understanding how to build value and the transaction process. You learn the critical steps for a successful transaction – and why you need to start planning now, regardless of how far you are from your exit.
You will gain insights into an advisory approach that focuses on maximizing client transaction value and improves the services you provide. A collaborative advisory team brings better advice and outcomes for our clients.
