    Business owners commonly face a dilemma of whether to hold on to their business, continuing to enjoy its financial rewards and the sense of fulfillment and purpose it gives, or cashing in to secure their future and lower their risk profile. Oftentimes, a need for liquidity, either for oneself or for a passive shareholder, may drive the owner to sell before he or she is ready. Adding to the anxiety, the question of when to sell can arouse all sorts of fears that had been suppressed or ignored over the years, such as:

    • What will I do with myself after the sale?
    • Will I have enough proceeds to support my lifestyle and philanthropic objectives?
    • Will the market for companies in my industry get even better than it is now?
    • And for some, will my being around the house jeopardize my marital status?

    There is a path that a surprising number of entrepreneurs are not aware of, one that lies in that middle zone and lets them keep the cake while taking an outsized slice for themselves – a partial recapitalization. Rather than agonize over whether they are selling too soon, owners should give serious consideration to a recap because it allows them to continue to own and control their company while still addressing any liquidity needs or securing their personal finances.

    Businesses that are established by two or more founders commonly face a point when one founder wants or needs to exit the business before the other. A useful tool in those situations is a buy/sell agreement, hopefully set up early on in the business, which determines the terms and valuation to allow the remaining owner to buy out his partner. In this session we will explore:

    When is the right time to implement a buy/sell agreement?

    How is valuation determined?

    What is the alternative to a buy/sell agreement?

TRI-STATE SPONSORS

"At XPX, I find really great people network with, and I enjoy being able to prospect with a cadre of experienced and accomplished high level advisors, at one location, where you can learn about their expertise at a much deeper level People at XPX tend to be more worldly not only due to the nature of the M&A biz — but as they hail from multiple disciplines over their years of experience.

XPX differs from other networking learning orgs in that it maintains a heavy focus on education but also is a group where pure professionalism is weighed more highly than just prospecting, with experienced professionals looking to gain an understanding of what you do and how you do it as opposed to just making a sale.

I have developed multiple tax clients and projects, but more importantly I value the fantastic relationships that I know over time will not only produce lots of new business but enable me to confidently refer to others e.g., attorneys in the group — and enable me to look good when I recommend. I love going to XPX for the social side, for the power networking groups –one of mine splintered off into an ongoing mastermind group sharing business ideas and mindfully addressing challenges — and, of course, the learning."
