Selling a business is probably the most important financial decision a business owner will ever make. Most business leaders will not have had time to consider what will happen, when the time comes to exit a business.

Join us for an exclusive and exciting day out, starting with a steam train journey from Kidderminster to Highley on the Severn Valley Railway, where our seminar will take place in the Engine House Museum, Highley.

At this seminar, hosted by Stirling in association with EvolutionCBS and Andrews Ritson, Solicitors, speakers will provide you with important information, demonstrating how the sales process actually works, how businesses are valued and how to maximise Shareholder Exit Value. The legal aspects of selling a business will provide you with a useful insight of what you need to do and be aware of, before your journey end.

The speakers will also cover how to create an exit strategy, including how to calculate your magic number (the amount of cash you need to realise from the sale of your business) and how to avoid the mistakes that some business owners often make when trying to sell. The day will finish with another steam train journey back from Highley to Kidderminster.
