The World’s Most Experienced Merger Professionals

2012 will be a banner year for tech M&A, much of it due to upcoming tax changes. Unfortunately, most self-managed M&A efforts will be unsuccessful, draining management and the company. You don’t know what you don’t know, and handling your first merger is not the time to learn. Having spent many long years building your company, invest a few short hours to learn how to handle the exit properly. It’s so important. Attend the industry’s definitive M&A education, complete with a 100-page tutorial, taught by the world’s most experienced merger professionals. Since 1990, more tech owners, investors, buyers and executives have attended Selling Up Selling Out than all other such conferences combined.

Ask Yourself:

  • Do you know how to properly prepare, position, research, value and negotiate for maximum price and tax optimized structure?
  • Do you know the how to find potential buyers, get their attention, and what they pay a premium for?
  • Are you ready for the due diligence minefield?

If not, you will fail. Get the real world knowledge you need now to “sell up” into a strategic alliance, investment or recapitalization, or “sell out” through a merger, asset or stock sale. Join us for this half-day executive seminar Selling Up, Selling Out for CEOs, owners, investors and buyers.

  • Preparation
  • Optimal Outcome Process
  • The New World of Buyers
  • Positioning For Price
  • Valuation Models
