For some business owners this environment may be an impetus to begin exit planning, and we will address how to position your business to maximize valuation as well as steps you can take now to ensure a smooth transition. On the other hand, many business owners view this economic cycle as a unique opportunity to grow through mergers & acquisitions as well as position their business to come out ahead once we are through this cycle. For those in this camp we will address how to take advantage of this environment and the resources available for you to do so.
