Event Introduction:

   The exit strategy for many entrepreneurs and business owners in today’s economic environment is an acquisition. One key to a successful M&A is creating real value through revenue generation, intellectual property, customer base, user metrics, people or other competitive differentiation.

   The other critical element is to ensure that your business’s finance and legal infrastructure is solid so when you receive an acquisition offer, your company can get through the due diligence step without costly and potentially lethal accounting and legal issues.

   Businesses which have closed a successful acquisition often attribute the outcome to careful advance planning and the leadership team’s ability to proactively make the right market,   financial and legal decisions.  

   If you have ever asked yourself the following questions, you will benefit from attending this SVC Wireless workshop:

·         Can you quickly identify and resolve the business, accounting, and legal issues that will surface during an acquisition? 

·         Do you know what is needed in your business structure to make your company a good acquisition target? 

   It may be too late to try to fix major a major accounting, business or legal problem once the acquisition process begins.  To maximize the opportunity for your company to be one of the M&A success stories of 2012 or beyond, you are invited to attend an informative workshop offered by SVC Wireless and presented by K&L Gates and Next Step. This program will provide you with practical tips and information on how to increase business value based on real world experience.

 Reserve your seat today to learn how to:

·         Lay a foundation today through your financial, legal and business practices for a successful and quick acquisition

·         Ensure legal and tax compliance as well as financial statements and controls can pass the scrutiny of due diligence

·         Avoid legal and accounting traps that can kill a deal, seriously increase transaction costs or cause discounts in value



Thank you for your kind attention and generous support.  We look forward to seeing you at CASPA events.
