Lessons Learned by Successful Sellers

Business exits require careful consideration of multiple factors and lots of work leading up to and through the transaction. Even with the best planning, exits often pose substantial challenges and opportunities for owners and their advisors to collaborate effectively in achieving a successful closing.

Join XPX Atlanta to hear firsthand from business owners who’ve experienced their own exit journeys as they share their “war stories” from the exit trenches. Learnings from the twists and turns of their personal exit stories will provide insights to help address key realities that arise during the exit process.
