How to Buy or Sell a Business

Date: Wednesday, May 01, 2019
Times: 8:30 am - 2:30 pm
Phone: 810-762-9660
Location: Kettering University in Flint
The Michigan Small Business Development Center (SBDC) has assembled a team of experts to discuss some of the many aspects of purchasing or selling a business. The half-day conference will take place on May 1, 2019 from 8:30 AM to 2:30 PM at Kettering University.

As many “Boomer” business owners look to retire, there is an influx of Millennials, Gen X, as well as encore career retirees interested in entering the entrepreneurial space. To help entrepreneurs navigate this transition, a team of business growth consultants from the Michigan SBDC has worked to develop a brand new “How to Buy or Sell a Business Workshop.”

“Over the past year the Michigan SBDC has worked to develop a totally new conference that goes way beyond the traditional advice on how to have a successful transaction,” commented Brooks Kindel, Business Growth Consultant at the Michigan SBDC.

“Regardless of which side of the transaction you are on, you will learn how to create a transition plan, how to build and utilize an advisory team, and how to assess and address the human capital that will determine if there will be a successful transition.”

Together, business buyers and sellers will learn:

First steps in determining whether to buy or sell a business

How to maximize the value of your business

How to market your business and how to find a business for sale

How to form a Transition Team of experts to help you buy or sell a business

How to create a Transition Plan to keep you on track for success

The basics of valuation, due diligence, brokers, and financing

Implications for tax, retirement, and estate planning

Keys to successfully transitioning a business to new ownership

Post-acquisition planning, change management, and company culture

Presenters include:

Dan Brophy, MBA, Business Growth Consultant

Mike Gay, MBA, CFA, CSBC, Business Growth Consultant

Brooks Kindel, MBA, CSBC, Business Growth Consultant

Kristi Kozubal, JD, Michigan SBDC Regional Director

Kathy Miller, MBA, PHR, CPLP, CSBC, Business Growth Consultant

Jose Navarrete, BSE, MBA, CSBC, Lean Six Sigma, Business Growth Consultant

Julie Oldham, CPA, CGMA, Business Growth Consultant

Industry experts will participate in a panel discussion, sharing their perspectives and expertise in buying or selling a business. Panelists include:

· Ben VanDerWeide, SBA Lender, Huntington Bank

· Scott Vroegindewey, Senior Loan Officer, MCDC

· Mark Rheaume, Senior Wealth Strategist, PNC Wealth Management

· Jeff Sabolish , Principal, Lewis & Knopf CPA, PC
