Attention all business owners: if you plan to retire, or think you might someday want to change gears in your life, you will eventually be faced with the task of selling or transferring ownership of your business. The information in this workshop is invaluable to any business owner — no matter what age you are, or what stage of its story your business is in!

The workshop will be presented by Philip Steckler and Eric Lineback of Country Business, Inc. (CBI). CBI is the leading business brokerage and merger & acquisition firm in Northern New England. The firm has managed the sales of over 1,200 businesses since 1976, with sale prices ranging from a few hundred thousand dollars to $30 million, including the following local businesses: Quabbin Industries, New England Wetland Plants, Danco Modern, Bart’s Ice Cream and Graphic Printing.

Phil and Eric will introduce business owners to the following topics: maximizing the value of a business, properly pricing and positioning a business for sale, attracting qualified buyers, minimizing taxes, and maintaining confidentiality. Additional topics covered will include: analyzing a business’ strengths and weaknesses, understanding the marketplace, valuing a business and properly setting the purchase price and terms, and more.

This will be an interactive workshop, and questions and discussion will be welcome. Please share this information with your friends, colleagues and business partners. We hope to see you there!
