"Building Business Value Now for Successful Exit Later"

Friday, September 22, 2006
11:45 AM - 1:30 PM

Managing a growing and thriving business can require 60-hour weeks. The day to day events can consume even the best-organized CEOs.

As a result, the establishment of an exit strategy is often postponed. Business owners inherently believe there is plenty of time later to firm up an exit strategy.

The problem with this thinking is that without a strategy, improper decisions can be made that greatly reduce value or eliminate exit strategy options.

Today, many companies are built to sell. Owners with this strategy continually focus on factors to enhance the exit process. The best advice is to ensure you have a balance between the "here and now," and the "there and later."

Our panel discusses how to successfully position your company to ensure the exit you want for your company. Discussion points include:

-Making decisions based on 'there and later'
-Business Valuation: how to calculate?
-Invest time in planning the exit
-Understand due diligence deal breakers
