Buying or Selling a Business

The specialist Corporate Team at Smith Partnership and deal specialists from Strategic Corporate Finance are joining forces to co-host an informative half day seminar on Buying or Selling a Business on Wednesday 20th November 2013 (am). We and Strategic Corporate Finance are delighted to invite you to join us at the event and also welcome along any colleagues, contacts or clients that may also wish to attend.

The seminar will be of interest to anyone who is a shareholder, director or business owner or manager:

• Contemplating an exit from their business

• Considering a management buy-out

• Seeking to expand or enhance their business by acquisition

• Facing succession issues

• Wanting to enhance the value and saleability of their business

As we finally emerge from recession into a period of growth and business confidence starts to rise all businesses and their owners should be reviewing their future plans and options.

Selling or acquiring a business can be a daunting and complex process and it is often not clear where you should begin or who you should talk to. It is also likely to be one of the biggest financial transactions of your career, possibly your life and will have repercussions for your future and that of your loyal workforce. Specialist advisors from Smith Partnership and Strategic Corporate Finance work daily with business owners who are facing these issues, guiding them through the process and ensuring they get the best possible outcome.

The seminar will include insightful jargon-free presentations from both firms, giving practical advice and useful hints and tips to shareholders, directors or managers who may be contemplating, or potentially involved with buying or selling a company in the future. Attendees will leave the seminar better prepared for a transaction and with a greater understanding of what’s involved, how businesses are valued in the real world, how deals are put together and the risks involved with not using specialist advisors. Attendees will also take away relevant planning points for their own business or circumstances.

Please note that there is no charge for attending or for lunch. Please email marketing@smithpartnership.co.uk to reserve your place!
