Increasing the Value of Your Enterprise

Business owners make decisions every day that impact the long-term value of the business. Very few things are as important in growing a business as proper planning for ultimate value creation in the company. In this program, our discussion will focus on:

  • Strategic considerations in building enterprise value
  • Key accounting, legal and financial issues to consider as you continue to grow
  • Preparing for a successful exit strategy
  • Potential exit strategy options and considerations

Additionally, you will also hear from a leading Investment Banker, a commercial banker and Mergers & Acquisitions attorney who will describe value creation from their perspectives, as well as a wealth management professional who will describe the personal financial preparations necessary before any transactional event.
