* 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?

Most small business owners don’t consider mergers and acquisitions (M&A) as an option to grow their business or ensure their business remains relevant. They don’t realize they are missing out on the preferred way in which most companies achieve their next level of growth. 

In today’s fast changing business environment, small business owners must learn from larger companies if they want to expand beyond the limits of what organic growth initiatives can achieve for their business. 

Selling or merging a business is not like selling a house. There are many challenges and obstacles to a successful business sale or merger. Much planning is needed to identify the obstacles faced by business owners and overcome or minimize the effect of the obstacles.

We will identify the trends of the M&A market and focus specifically on benefits and advantages of using mergers or acquisitions to achieve massive business growth. We will discuss why mergers and acquisitions are so attractive to business owners, shareholders and investors, why inorganic growth is projected to continue to grow within the next 20 years, why it is important to ensure your company is prepared to succeed, and how to prepare to go through a successful merger or acquisition.

You’ll learn: 

  * Why you should consider small business M&A

* How to prepare your company to be deal-ready

* What steps must you take to prepare

* What pitfalls to avoid

Business owners are encouraged to bring questions and ask the experts for guidance regarding your specific business situation.
