Event Description:

Recent studies indicate that most business owners do not currently have or plan to develop an exit strategy or understand their options. Because business owners spend a large majority of their time running the business, it’s not surprising that little attention is given to thinking about what will happen to both the business and to them personally once they are ready to move on.

We have assembled an esteemed panel that will business owners and entrepreneurs navigate and explore common exit strategies and options for companies and their owners. Three common exit options that will be explored include:

•Private Equity (PE) sales
•Strategic Company sales
•ESOP transactions

The panelists will summarize each type of transaction, common myths surrounding each, how company valuations are determined in each type of sale, various deal structures and tax implications, and what companies should do (or not do) in preparing for a sale of the business.
