The Impact of Industry Consolidation on Exit Strategy Planning

Planning an exit strategy for your company doesn’t suggest you’re conceding—it means you’re a smart businessperson. As the economic climate has changed in the past two years, things have become challenging for many small operators. This session will offer the pros and cons of various exit strategies, as well as proposals for whether you’re looking to get out at the right time for the right reasons. You’ll learn that having a long-term plan for the future, whether you’re considering a buy-out or even expansion, is more than practical; it’s essential.
