Years are spent building a successful business. That success has been driven by long days and late nights working, but none of it has come easy. Is now the right time to think about selling? What can be done today to prepare for the right time? Is this the dawn of an era of opportunity for middle-market businesses? These are the questions that face every business owner and that will be addressed by leading middle-market M&A professionals. With insights from people who spend their professional lives advising business owners about how to prepare for and execute smoothly a sale of their most precious asset, this is an event not to miss.
