Assessing the Business for Value Growth Opportunities

Join us as we examine how to assess a current business and uncover operational gaps, inefficiencies and eliminate company specific risk to increase value.  We’ll dive into key categories like: planning, leadership, marketing, people, operations, customer base, finance and legal.   In addition, we will discuss if/when a business is ready to sell or is prepared for an ownership transition.


Learning Objectives include:

  • How can you increase business value by not increasing EBITDA
  • Identify the issues that lower enterprise value.
  •  Measure how your business is performing relative to the industry
  •   Benchmarks. Are you best in class or below average?
  •   Learn how reducing company-specific risk in a business can create a more bankable business to the local bank.
