Two businesses of similar size in the same industry.... Both appear attractive to potential buyers. One will sell at a premium. The other will sell at a discount, if it sells at all. Why?
Come find out on August 22nd!
The market for selling businesses will become incredibly tough as Baby Boomers, who own two-thirds of the privately-held businesses, seek to retire. It’s not just a problem for individual business owners, but for the communities they serve. That’s why they need a CEPA! Certified Exit Planning Advisors (CEPA) are specifically trained in advising on proper and financially sound exit strategies for when the time comes to sell a business.
CEPA’s also work closely with your CPAs, attorneys, financial planners, estate planners, bankers, insurance brokers, M&A advisors, and local governments to build the best transition for you.
There are only about a thousand CEPAs in the United States, and only 21 in the Commonwealth of Virginia. As one of the only very specialized certified exit planning advisors in the area, I am here to work for business owners in the Fredericksburg area.
Join me to find out about becoming transition ready. Just because a business has enjoyed a strong history and bottom line, doesn’t mean that it has transferable market value.
I will be presenting an introduction to Exit Planning and Value Growth on Thursday, August 22nd, at the Fredericksburg Regional Chamber of Commerce, beginning at 5:00 PM.
“It is a fact. There will come a time when your most valuable asset will change hands. You will cease to be the owner. Whether that transition is successful is up to you…. I want you to unlock the wealth trapped in your business prior to your imminent exit and create the future and legacy you deserve.” Christopher Snider
I will be handing out copies of Chris Snider’s book, Walking to Destiny: 11 Actions an Owner MUST Take to Rapidly Grow Value & Unlock Wealth
One randomly selected business owner will receive a Gold-level package of business assessments and valuation, normally priced at $12,000.
