New Tech Equity Compensation Workshop

Bader Martin 1000 Second Avenue, 34th Floor , Seattle, WA (map)


Join us for an exclusive intimate workshop to help you and 34 others get answers to your pressing legal and tax questions around getting acquired or acquiring companies. Discover inside information on:

- Getting your business ready for sale

- Potential changes to current business structure

- Forms of transaction: stock, cash, notes, asset sale, allocation

- How to get organized and prepare for an M&A event

- What first-time sellers (and buyers) wish they had known before selling (or buying)

- Understanding deal terms and the market

- Want More Money? How to Maximize Value in Selling Your Business

There’s an old adage, it’s the journey and not the destination. While the terminology differs, the concept is an important one when selling a privately held business. The sale is a process, not simply a transaction. And perhaps surprisingly, that process can take years if you want to maximize the value. It’s never too early to start.

So, what should you be thinking about and doing now?

Join us to learn about the financial and tax considerations that can make your business more attractive to a potential buyer. Things like whether you have the right entity structure and the optimal accounting and reporting systems.

The impact of outstanding state tax issues. And how to evaluate alternative deal structures. When you understand the buyer’s perspective, you can proactively take action to maximize your value, streamline due diligence and avoid problems at the negotiating table.

At this panel discussion led by partners of Summit Law Group and Bader Martin, get insights and wisdom about the M&A process. For example, learn how to properly manage the due diligence process, maximize enterprise value by knowing the priorities of the stakeholders, build your all-star M&A execution team, manage risks and surprises, and keep your eye on the ball.

Also, you’ll get specially-tailored advice about (and what’s currently market for) key M&A deal terms. Come prepared with your questions for this exclusive opportunity!

We’ll be in an intimate panel format for a collaborative discussion and to give you personalized help and advice. Summit Law and Bader Martin will be providing teams of legal and tax professionals, handouts and coffee and pastries for you.
