What to Expect When Selling Your Business

Selling a business is perhaps the most complex exercise a business owner can undertake in their lifetime. Too often, attorneys, buyers, and others take for granted that the seller has an understanding of the steps, the risks, the timing, and the other aspects of the process. In this webinar we will lay out the key aspects of the sale process from start to finish in a format tailor-made for the uninitiated owner. This will be an entry level discussion requiring no prior deal experience, no legal background, and no knowledge of accounting. Specifically:

  • What steps are appropriate for finding buyers
    • What risks arise when looking for buyers
    • How much time should be allocated to finding buyers
  • What steps are involved in selecting the actual buyer
    • How do I identify the risks different buyers pose
    • What timing constraints will I face when making that selection
  • What are the steps required to get the deal done -
    • What are the key deal risks to be considered ahead of time
    • How long should it take to get to the closing
