Webinar | Getting More from the Sale of Your Business

    | March 24, 2021

    A 2018 report showed that 40% of business owners are preparing to leave their business in the next five years. Yet of the business owners who are planning to sell, 37% have no structures in place to shield sale proceeds, 48% have no formal exit strategy, and 58% aren’t even sure what their business is worth.1

    On October 30th, we hosted a webinar on how best to prepare for the future sale of your business. You’ve worked hard to build your business, so we covered all the information you need to ensure that when the time comes, you get the return you deserve.

    Specifically, we discussed…

    • How to make your business attractive to investment bankers and strategic buyers
    • Actions you can take today that will help you sell your business in the future
    • Strategies to minimize capital gains and estate taxes on sale proceeds
    • How to ensure you have the right team assembled to help you sell your business
