David Lloyd, President of IntelliResponse will be speaking on:

"So You Want to Sell Your Company? What's Next?"

So you want to sell your company? Ok, so Google hasn't appeared with a $500 million dollar unsolicited bid for your company but you've been seeing interest around your company and the general space, what's next? In this workshop I will cover the process we went through from the discussion that led to the process, selection of an investment banker through development of the circular, selection of companies, due diligence and the share purchase agreement process. A soup to nuts view from a company that believed the time was right to reach into the market and drive a process. Given NDA's we cannot share specific deal information, but will be able to walk through the mechanics

Space is limited so be sure to register today! If you did not recieve your invitation, please contact us.
