Preparing your business for sale Series

Getting the right price?

25 November 2014

Many kiwi business owners expect to sell their business before they retire using the proceeds to fund their retirement. But this “dream outcome” won’t happen without careful advance planning. Join Monteck Carter Chartered Accountants and Kiwibank at the second of a series of seminars on Preparing your business for sale.

In this session we had a panel discussion with two business owners who are clients of Monteck Carter. Both of them managed to build businesses that were sought after by a public company. We heard how they were able to gain maximum price from their business sale.

This session covered:

Feedback we recieved from the previous event:

“Highly topical subject for a series of seminars run by the professionals most trusted by business owners – their accountants. Your choice of speaker for the first event was brilliant: his simplicity and courage resonated with the audience and impressed me no end. Can’t wait for the next seminar” Phillip Kotze

“Transitioning out of your business is one of the scariest things you can do. This is a great programme that Monteck Carter is putting on and I wholeheartedly endorse it. An outcome for tonight – think about the planning discipline. Do the whole seminar series.” Tom Wilson CEO Shears and Mac

Speakers: Doug Hitchcock, previously CEO of Glassfields NZ Limited and Hugh Chapman, previously CEO of Aqua Environmental Services Pty Limited.

Both Doug and Hugh have interesting backgrounds in their respective industries. They are down to earth people who managed to build up a successful business in their particular specialist field. We will be asking Doug and Hugh a series of questions to gain a good understanding of what they did to achieve a good sale and they will be available for questions at the end.
