Thank you for attending WELCOME! Thank you for attending our seminar “Buying , Selling and Valuing Your Privately Held Business”. We will share some ideas and experiences that we hope will be beneficial in your understanding of the “Real World” of privately owned businesses and the factors that affect their value. That Sunbelt is the largest business brokerage network in the world with over 300 offices in 14 countries is not particularly important to this presentation. However the source of this presentation comes from the experience pool of a large network of professional business brokers. In this seminar Joseph Harrel will convey awareness of areas that drive the value of a business, confidentiality in the sale or transfer of the business, finance issues , how we help protect all parties throughout the process with a goal to arriving at a win-win scenario for everyone involved.
