The Road From Start-Up to Exit - Growing Your Business For Your Eventual Exit / Sale


Cost: Free

This workshop is aimed at all growing businesses!  It deals with initial shareholder structures and shareholders agreements to ensure the business is correctly structured from the start.  It covers the considerations when considering equity investment from third parties and the changes this will require and loss of certain controls.  This is a key consideration for an expanding business and often not well understood by existing shareholders as such investment will be their first experience of this.
It also looks at the succession planning and eventual exit plan - external sales vs. internal buy outs - so that the management team can have a focus on their eventual goal(s).  
It provides a very detailed overview of the business sale process and also details how to structure parts of the business for separate disposal if required to maximise value.
It also enables the management team to consider whether part of the growth process for them should be an acquisition of another business and goes through this process with them.
This workshop will be run by qualified and experienced commercial Solicitors who deal with these issues for clients every day.  You will have the opportunity to discuss specific issues in relation to your own business both in the workshop and (for more confidential issues) in the breaks.
