Mergers and Acquisitions - Buying or Selling a Business

Join us for this eye-opening series about what every business owner needs to know when it comes to legal basics and operating your business effectively, efficiently and smartly. Hillel Goldman, attorney with Mix & Goldman, LLC, will present this 4-part Legal Bootcamp created in partnership with the CT Small Business Development Center and Greater Danbury Chamber of Commerce. Each session will cover an important topic relevant to small business owners in any industry. If you own and/or operate a business, you need to attend these workshops to learn about the things that you should (or MUST) be doing according to the law. This last session in the series will look at the buying or selling of a business. Buying and selling a business is by no means a simple feat - it's a science and an art. When you decide to embark on the journey, be sure to take the advice of Warren Buffet: "Never invest in a business you cannot understand." Without a plan, entrepreneurs may soon find themselves in a position to deal with some serious financial consequences. In order to avoid devastating outcomes, there are a few essential techniques everyone must learn before buying and selling a business. Regardless of when you think you might offer your business for sale, it's important to start preparing today for that transaction. Generally, owners think about selling their business years before they exit. Why? Failure to prepare for the exit could cost you millions when you are ready to sell. Discussion points include: - When do you get your attorney involved? - What you do from the beginning could come back to haunt you - It’s only a letter of intent, no worries right? Tuesday, April 23, 2019 at the Texas Roadhouse Restaurant, 74 Newtown Road in Danbury. Refreshments will be served. There is a nominal charge for this event: $5 for Chamber members and $15 for non-members (plus a small transaction fee).
