  • Tax Planning to Maximize Your Proceeds
  • Understanding Valuation and M&A Techniques to Sell For More

Moving on and transitioning can be a roller coaster of emotions; the highs of what you’ve created, experienced and accomplished to the jerky turns and steep drops of what’s next and the unknown. While it’s not always easy, it can be done with ease, I am a professional at it!Together we will have a conversation about what it’s really like to transition on to the next phase and we’ll build a personalized plan for your transition, your way. We’ll laugh, I’ll probably cry and you will leave knowing that the process of ‘what’s next’ can be light, fun and freeing.  I cannot wait to meet you!

Axel Christiansen, Renaissance M&A
604-928-5522 | axelc@rgroup.caUnderstanding Valuation and M&A Techniques
How companies are valued can be a bit of a mystery to entrepreneurs who have not sold a business previously. Enterprise value, capitalized earnings, discounted cash flow, EBITDA multiples, synergistic premiums, etc…what does it all mean?   Axel will explain the art and science of valuation so that you can embark on a sale process with a value expectation based on appropriate valuation concepts.The best way to maximize value is to conduct a well executed professional selling process which ensures that you reach the right buyers, provide them the right information at the right time and maximize competitive tension.  Axel will outline the techniques used by professional M&A advisors in a typical sale process. Since most transactions will face a few ‘bumps’ – common transaction challenges will also be discussed.

There are often some simple decisions on legal issues you can make and steps you can take in order to make it easier to sell your business.  He will educate you on how a typical process is run from a legal perspective, how a typical purchase or sale agreement is drafted and what to expect as you go through the process.
His presentation will include discussing why you need to get your due diligence organized in advance, why would you consider either an asset purchase or a share purchase, why you may look at alternatives to assist in financing the purchase and how the key terms in your documents can assist or cause issues on the potential sale or purchase.
