What is my business worth?  When is the best time to sell it?  How do I maximize its value?

If you are like many business owners in the shooting sports industry, you may be asking yourself these questions plus many more.  The good news is the National Association of Sporting Goods Wholesalers along with Growth Strategy Partners, Munitions Law Group and The Hickory Group are going to answer them for you for free!*  

(This webinar is specifically designed for business owners, Presidents and CEOs.  If you are unsure if they will receive this email, please forward it to them.)

Demand in our industry is down, but that doesn’t mean preparing to sell your business should be delayed.  In fact, based on our collective experience, 99% of companies are not prepared to sell their company even when the market is booming.  Preparing to harvest the wealth in your business, which is undoubtedly one of your greatest assets, should be a top priority.  Even if you have no present intent to sell your business, there is tremendous value in understanding the process, which we will explain during this one- hour webinar.   

In this webinar, we will share with you:

  • How to prepare your business to achieve maximum value and a strong legacy
  • How you personally need to prepare
  • How to value a business in our industry
  • What is the sale process and how long does it take?
  • Options on selling your company
  • Typical mistakes made when selling

This webinar is specifically designed for business owners and presidents in the outdoor sports industry thinking about selling their business in the next 1 to 5 years. If you’re not the company owner, please forward it to him or her.

This webinar will be presented by Chris DiCenso of Growth Strategy Partners, Clay Cheshire of Munitions Law Group and Nick Kirk of The Hickory Group.
