Mergers and Acquisitions Forum
What You Can Expect
The Mergers and Acquisitions Forum workshop brings together top professionals from FMI’s Investment Banking, Center for Strategic Leadership and Management Consulting business units and puts an arsenal of more than 60 years of industry-specific experience at the disposal of participants for two days. Limited to just 50 attendees, participants have the undivided attention and focus of FMI’s professional team. At the end of the workshop, you will leave with a deeper understanding of the strategies necessary to improve, position and transition your business, as well as know what steps are needed to execute a successful transaction.
This program focuses specifically on helping you develop your firm’s strategy to best position your firm for sale to a third-party company or to your employees. The goal of the workshop is to accelerate your ability to create value in your firm, lead your organization successfully through a transaction, and execute a transaction to meet your shareholders’ objectives.
Benefits of Attending
An effective transition strategy has business, leadership and ownership strategies that work together to position the company and provide an enduring organization that generates successors and meets shareholder objectives. Participants of this workshop will learn how these strategies work together to provide a successful transaction.
- Learn how a third party buyer will value your business
- Understand leadership development strategies to improve your organization and grow your business to support a third party or employee sale
- Gain insight on business strategies to increase the value and marketability of your company
