We have a great event coming up on March 27th at the Wellesley College Club. As the economy improves, merger & acquisition activity has gained momentum. We expect this trend will continue. Right now, acquirors are looking for target companies that offer a strategic fit and sustainable value. Understanding what buyers really want is the key to finding and closing a successful deal. We have an experienced panel of speakers to share their insights on overall M&A trends, the differing perspectives of strategic and financial buyers, and key steps sellers can take to stand out in a crowd.
We plan to discuss how to identify the key value drivers of any business, assess current and future exit alternatives, and avoid common mistakes in negotiating and closing deals. Our panel will include Frank Panaccio, Managing Director at Boston Meridian, Jim Rich, Managing Director at Gemini Investors, Dara Mitchell, Director of Corporate Development at Kadant, Inc., and Frank Pinto, Managing General Partner at Eastern Growth Capital.
