With strong M&A market conditions and likely significant tax changes, 2021 may be the ideal time to explore a liquidity event. Are you and your business ready for an exit? Our panelists will discuss the steps to prepare your business for an M&A transaction, current market conditions, and the tax changes that may be enacted in 2022.
Jeff Bledsoe, former CEO and Founder of Five Star Custom Foods, shares his experience and provides valuable insights into the intricacies of selling a business and the lessons learned – before, during, and after – his successful sale.
The process of pursuing a liquidity event is time-consuming and has several nuances in each of its stages. You and your team will embark on an emotional journey for which you need to be prepared and surrounded with the right advisors. Alejandro Cola of Lazard Middle Market and Matt Mittman of Mazars share their experience in helping business owners navigate the process.
The proposed tax changes could go into effect on January 1st, 2022, and the process of selling your business could take between six and nine months – so the time to act may be now!
This event will be recorded and sent to all registrants.
