Moving On, Up or Out: Buying or Selling a Privately Held Business

Thursday, April 14 2011 8:00am - 10:00am Eastern Time Presented by:

More than 700,000 businesses change ownership each year, according to the U.S. Small Business Administration. Most are small- and mid-sized businesses.  Many factors can lead to the decision to sell a business, such as retirement, partnership disputes, health concerns or new business pursuits.  Such transactions do not take place, however, without careful planning and preparation. 

On April 14, a free seminar is being offered for those considering the purchase or sale of a business.  Steve Greenberg, chair of Flaster/Greenberg's Corporate Practice Group, will provide an overview of the sale process, examining how to position a company for sale, assess its value, negotiate a favorable sales agreement and other key documents, and close the deal.

Topics include:

  • Establishing negotiation objectives and parameters
  • Letters of intent and other key documents
  • Allocation of purchase price
  • Employee relationships and compensation
  • Valuation
  • Stock vs. asset sales
  • Payment methods
  • Warranties, obligations and liabilities
