    Family Businesses: Options for Growth, Succession, and Exit

    $25.00

    Business owners often face the question of what’s next – the decision between keeping and growing the business or transitioning it.  Growing the business has its associated short-term rewards and long-term risks.  Transitioning the business has the complication of whether it is in whole or in part; internally to the family or team; or selling to the nebulous third party.  Business owners often have the feeling that the advice they are receiving is prematurely narrowed.  This session will identify and discuss the pros and cons of the myriad of potential strategies as well as the improvements you should start making now to increase the value of the business.  Learn how to navigate the tributaries and ramifications of your potential choices.

    Family Businesses: Attractiveness, Readiness, and Valuation – Factors that Business Owners Often Don’t Know

    $25.00

    Simply recasting financials to find a new EBITDA and estimating a factor does not make a true valuation – even when combined with a calculation of fixed assets and goodwill.  Misunderstanding enterprise value, a lifestyle business, and/or discrete and non-discrete intangible assets often cause businesses to lose value.   Learn the nuances of Assessments/Valuations and how to transition from a Wisdom-driven Business to a Value-driven Business. Value-driven Businesses increase your options by systematizing the magic you’ve applied to creating success up to this point. They command stability for internal transitions, as well as the highest market value if you decide to sell.

    Engaging Closely Held Businesses – Value Creation and Transitions
