Rollover - Why It Makes Sense To Everyone And How To Do It Right

Host Clinton Johnston

Owners selling their business and staying on is a growing phenomenon. Whether they went to market just seeking an “elevator deal” (i.e., some additional capital to grow the business) or they decide to stick around for a “second bite of the apple,” business owners seem to not be quite ready to let go these days. As long as transaction multiples stay at record high levels, this trend is almost sure to continue if not strengthen. While this is an obvious attraction for many sellers – or else it wouldn’t be happening – it comes with added complications.

The two most common concerns these raises are:

1. Won’t I get diluted down over time?
2. How will I monetize the minority investment that I take as part of this transaction?

Understanding the answers to these two questions is an important part of deciding how you want to go to market and when you want to start the process. This webinar will provide the information required to allow you, the business owner, to rest easy with regard to these two issues in order to focus on the many other issues involved in the decision.
