Optimize Your Exit Value:

5 Financial Statement Warning Signs

presented by Jody Ruth and Terry Hopkins of AccuMetrics LLC

What do the financial statements say about your company?  At this interactive session, discuss how strategic buyers interpret financial statements and use this information to impact their negotiating strategy and ultimately the purchase offer.  Learn 5 common clues in financial statements and the underlying operational causes that strategic buyers interpret as warning signs and why they draw that conclusion.  The greater the number of warning signs the lower the purchase offer.  We will discuss key financial statement metrics, as well as key components of the balance sheet and income statement. Learn what strategies and tactics you can implement to enhance the financial results and optimize your exit value.
