The Forbes M+A Group to Host “Three Successful Exits” Free Breakfast Panel

A Panel of Business Owners Will Provide Lessons Learned From Successfully Selling a Business; Event is Co-Sponsored by Eide Bailly, Kutak Rock LLP and Morgan Stanley Financial Advisors, Jon Greenfield and Shelley Ford

Experts predict a massive sell-off by baby boomer business owners; while at the same time, the economy is bouncing in and out of recovery. Anxiety levels are at an all-time high as business owners are looking for the best schedule and recipe for an exit. Timing is critical. In many cases, it’s the non-financial factors that make the difference between getting out with the perfect deal, being left with a suboptimum exit, or not getting out at all. A panel of business owners will share their stories over breakfast with those who want to learn how to successfully navigate this new market reality when selling a business or taking on a significant investor.

Topics to be discussed will include:

  • Protecting one’s legacy
  • Fair treatment of employees and management
  • What’s next for the selling business owners
  • What they might have done differently

The following three panelists and high-profile executives who have been through the selling process several times will candidly share their first-hand experiences:

  • Jim Freeman – Founder and former owner of Attain Technologies
  • Enrique Krajmalnik – Founder and former owner of Illumen
  • Lon Sears – Founder and former owner of FirstChoice Home Health

This free breakfast panel is taking place on Wednesday, May 15, 2013 from 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. at the JW Marriott Denver at Cherry Creek (150 Clayton Ln, Denver, CO 80206). Complimentary continental breakfast and valet parking included.

Seating is limited. Please RSVP to Sharleen at sharleen@forbesma.com by Monday, May 13, 2013.
