POSTPONED - Business Masterclass: Exit Strategies and how to survive them!
Thu 27 October 2016, 10:00 – 14:00 BST
Come to the fourth of ten Swale and Medway Business Masterclasses, in partnership with the University of Greenwich, to be held at Hempstead House Hotel, Sittingbourne. Hear from the Chairman of Wirebelt on the issues to be considered when acquiring a business from a major shareholder and from Kreston Reeves and Furley Page on the financial, legal and tax considerations of the numerous exit strategy options.
Designed for Owners and Managing Directors of SME businesses, this programme of sessions is focussed on delivering usable skills and techniques in a range of relevant topics that attendees can help to shape.
SME Speaker: Paul Winter, Chairman of Wire Belt Ltd. Paul will discuss what Wire Belt look for when acquiring another SME and give examples of the companies they purchased, allowing the major shareholder to exit the business.
Workshop: Developing an Exit Strategy isn't just for when you want to sell your business and it is important for all high growth companies to make it part of their planning process. Selling your business, passing it on to others to manage for you, making an Initial Public Offering or choosing another exit strategy for your business can be an emotional decision as well as a financial one. In this presentation, Simon Jordan, Corporate Finance Partner at Kreston Reeves and Tony Chester from Furley Page will cover the financial, legal and tax aspects to be considered in a decision that will be important for both your business and your personal future.
The masterclass will start with tea and coffee at 10:00am. Networking opportunities and lunch will also be provided at 1:00pm, along with an opportunity for you to tell us what topics you would like us to deliver masterclasses for later in the programme.
