About this Seminar:

So, you are ready to sell your company and/or prepare it for acquisition... On the buy side, you are working to grow your revenue base or maximize your client profile, or you are looking to expand into new markets.

Whatever your motivations, you need to be prepared for what may be difficult decisions and negotiations. This seminar will address questions such as: Does doing it yourself make sense? Should you hire an advisor, or use an investment banker? Should the anticipated size of the transaction dictate the expertise that you hire? What should be your knowledge capture and retention plan? Did you think about one, or do you even care?

As current credit markets get tighter, a new focus on deeper due diligences may drive future deals, and negotiations may become tougher and take longer. Are you prepared for this? More specifically, how do you prepare your technical, human and operational infrastructures to facilitate this negotiation process?

Our seminar will address many of the questions that you should be asking in preparation for your sell or buy transaction. We have assembled an exemplary panel of experts that will address these questions and provide valuable insight into the workings of the sometimes mysterious world of high finance. Come hear what will determine company valuations, and learn about the financial subtleties that could make or break your deal.

Join us this September 12th at Georgetown University's Center for Continuing and Professional Education campus in Arlington, Virginia - A great location accessible via Metro and with plenty of available parking.


This special event is convened by the WNG Technology Roundtable and WNG Entrepreneur Roundtable.
