Selling a business to achieve a vendor’s target price is frequently a time-consuming and complex process. In addition to the legal and accounting considerations there are issues of presentation, timing and tactics that are important elements of the campaign to close a successful sale.
The course covers the practical steps that are required to plan, negotiate, and close a successful sale. Valuing the business to be sold and the effective presentation of the commercial attractions of the business are key elements, as are choosing the appropriate advisers and running a competitive auction.
All of our courses are part a larger group of courses and as part of our approach to training the financial industry we ensure all subjects are covered. Please see other courses within corporate finance.
