Selling a business is probably the most important financial decision a business owner will make. As busy business leaders, you may not have had time to consider what will happen when you want to exit your business.

At this morning briefing, we’ll help you evaluate what options are available and how to create value maximizing price, speed and certainty in a future transaction.

Our speakers will cover how to create a robust exit strategy, including how to calculate your magic number (the amount of cash you need to realise from the sale of your business) and how to avoid pitfalls, such as poor valuations, price chipping and bad tax planning, that could prevent you from achieving it.
