How to Successfully Buy and Sell a Private Business

Our seminars are aimed at owners of successful private businesses and are designed to provide practical information and guidance to help you achieve your goals.

We will be concentrating on the practical issues and problems that need to be handled before and during the sale process.

Our seminars are free to attend and include complimentary lunch – places are limited and our events are highly targeted towards small groups of owners of small to medium sized enterprises. If we are unable to accommodate your requested date and venue we will ensure you have a reserved place at the next event. Alternatively, we can send one of our M&A Advisors to your office and present a workshop to you and your team covering the same topics.

Topics Include:

  • Why buy and sell in the current market?
  • Why an Information Memorandum is a bad idea
  • The importance of timing
  • Preparing your business
  • How to go to the widest possible market without divulging your identity?
  • 2016 – What’s HOT and NOT!
  • The ten worst faults of buyers and sellers
  • Choosing advisors

Places are limited as our events are targeted towards select groups of owners and shareholders of mainly private companies.
