Helping SMEs Navigate Growth in the Workplace
‘Buying and selling businesses – unmissable tales and tips from Mergers and Acquisitions experts’
The decision to buy or sell a business can be fraught with nerve-jangling and complex considerations about the legal, commercial and ethical aspects of any deal.
The biggest question of all might be: ‘Am I about to make a terrible mistake?’
To help you avoid that by putting a rock solid plan in place, Cloud9 Growth Hub has gathered some of the most battle-hardened minds in the SME sector to guide you through the knowledge, insights, and takeaways you must not miss.
- Adrian Alexander, partner at FRP Advisory, will talk on financing a business purchase and preparing your business for sale.
- Karen Lord, partner at Healys will discuss the key corporate legal aspects and potential pitfalls of a purchase or sale.
- Gerry Lawrence, Regional Director at Freeman Clarke, will cover the first 100 days after sale.
