Small to mid-market M&A transactions often represent the most significant financial event in the sellers' lives, yet the sellers are usually unprepared. To a large extent, this is understandable because most small to mid-sized business owners are so busy dealing with actual problems arising in running their businesses that they do not have the time or energy to prepare for a potential sale transaction that seems far in the future. When it comes to having a company ready for sale, though, the future is always closer than you think. This presentation includes the financial issues, employee issues, contractual issues and structural issues that should be addressed in advance of the decision to sell.
Planning for a sale of a company needs to begin several years before the transaction takes place. In this seminar, you will learn:
· How to plan ahead to prepare the company and its owners for sale.
· How to anticipate and proactively address potential buyer's concerns.
· Issues to consider in the sale of a business.
