Preparing Your Company—And Yourself—For Eventual Sale & A Liquidity Event

Presented By: BDO USA LLP / BNY Mellon Wealth Management

In this break-out session, two M&A advisors and a pair of veteran entrepreneurs discuss the discovery, preparation and exit phases of a sale transaction. They’ll share their thoughts on how sellers can maximize their understanding of these phases to achieve a successful transaction and then be prepared to manage the funds generated by significant liquidity events.
