Selling a business starts a lot sooner than a few months before the transaction closes. If you want to drive the ideal outcome for key stakeholders, preparation should start years in advance. In this presentation, hear from M&A experts, wealth planners, and a CEO who’s company recently sold on the actions you can be taking today so that when the business you work for sells, the personal and corporate objectives of all key stakeholders are achieved. 

In the session you will learn how to:

- Explore opportunities to streamline the sales process and achieve shareholder objectives
- Delve into strategies to position the business for sale to certain buyers
- Discuss estate planning strategies for owners to drive tax efficient outcomes
