Please join us for an interactive manufacturing industry roundtable immediately following our Financial Managers Learning Forum. Our experts will set the tone for the conversation with a Market Report on M&A activity for the manufacturing sector, followed by an open forum where our facilitator will pose questions to our experts and the roundtable audience.

The focus of our conversation will cover the following topics:

  • Don't leave dollars on the table: make sure you properly prepare for an exit by bringing your advisors to the table
  • Due diligence is key for a strategic exit and having the right advisors will help your valuation
  • Making your manufacturing company attractive to PE investors
  • Dispelling myths around PE transactions for manufacturing companies

Whether or not you are currently contemplating an exit plan, this session will provide valuable insight that can apply to your business now or in the future.
