Wells Fargo Current M&A Environment & How to Prepare for a Successful Outcome

Room 329, Level Three

(AAB/SME/MBE Only) Today’s business environment is full of M&A activity, as companies are being bought out at a record pace. However, only a small percentage of businesses listed for sale actually sell. Even owners who do sell usually don’t realize the full value of their business because their business is not adequately prepared for sale. As a result, business owners usually walk away from the process without a successful sale or leaving a great deal of money on the table.
