Byond M&A Executive Breakfast

M&A Pitfalls To Avoid

Wednesday, June 20th | 8:30 - 10:30 a.m. ET

Tysons, VA

Join an exclusive panel discussion for mid-market business executives and small business owners with little or no experience buying or selling a business.

This event is by invitation only. You will receive further instructions once your information is confirmed.

* Have you received an unsolicited offer to sell your company and don't know what to do?

* Looking to grow your business through acquisitions and don't know where to start?

* Want to sell your company because you want to retire?

70-90% of mergers and acquisitions are abysmal failures.

Selling or acquiring a business is not like selling or buying a house. There are many challenges to a successful business sale or merger. Adequate planning is needed to identify the obstacles faced by business owners, and overcome or eliminate the effect of the barriers. In addition, a team of subject matter experts are needed to help inexperienced owners avoid common pitfalls.

In this discussion, you will have an opportunity to meet mid-market business executives and small business owners who will share their M&A success stories. They will explain why it is crucial to prepare early to sell or buy a business, how to prepare, and what to expect. This is also a great opportunity to network with other like-minded business executives and owners who will be participating.

You’ll learn: 

  *  Why you need to ensure your company is deal-ready 

  *  How to prepare for a successful M&A deal 

  *  What are the steps for a successful M&A deal  

  *  What are pitfalls to avoid

Business executives are encouraged to bring questions and ask the panelists and experts for guidance regarding their specific business situation.
