Legal Breakfast Series: How I Sold My Company - A Case Study

Attorneys Peter Burger and Julie Morse will be joined by John Howe of Business Transition Strategies as the featured speakers during the latest Orr & Reno Legal Breakfast Series on Wednesday, June 14 at the Orr & Reno offices at 45 South Main Street in Concord.

Mr. Howe will present a case study detailing the successful outcome of the sale of an established New England-based company, which had achieved significant growth and customer satisfaction over three decades.

The presentation will focus on the challenges of developing an exit strategy for the business owners who sought to retire and allow for:

  • Retention of staff
  • Continued use of the existing company facility
  • Identifying a buyer who would pay the highest multiple of EBITDA
  • Maintaining focus on business operations during the diligence process
  • Successful financing and execution of the sale

Mr. Howe advises owners of privately held companies in the lower mid-market through transition and transfer. He holds the M&A Master Intermediary designation, a professional status earned through education and successful transactions. He is the 2017 chairman of M&A Source, a national association of M&A intermediaries. He also is a Certified Exit Planning Advisor and a member of Alliance of M&A Advisors

Attorney Burger is a shareholder and the President of Orr & Reno with a practice area focus in hospitality, mergers and acquisitions, business counseling and succession planning.

Attorney Morse is a business attorney who assists clients with mergers and acquisitions, securities regulation, entity formation and restructurings, and corporate governance.
