San Rafael, CA – Tom Marx, CEO of Marx Group Advisors will share his mergers and acquisitions (M&A) expertise during the Successful Dealer Development workshops that are part of Intersection 2012 in Dallas, Texas. Marx will discuss “How to Sell Your Company For What It’s Worth: Avoiding Pitfalls During the Business Valuation Process” on Thursday, August 23, 2012.

“Determining the value of your company often means war between you and a potential buyer,” said Marx. “I will be helping truck and trailer dealers with important steps they can take in order to get the absolute best value for their business.”

In addition, Marx will help attendees understand how to determine what their company is truly worth; the difference in value when selling to an insider versus an outsider; key metrics to determine company value; and ways to improve these metrics to gain a higher value.
