April 2, 2013

Marx Group Advisors CEO will explain how to prepare and follow-through to successfully value a business

San Rafael, CA – Tom Marx, CEO of Marx Group Advisors, will present “Aspects of Buying/Selling a Small Business” at a Wednesday, April 17, 2013Production Engine Remanufacturers Association (PERA) webinar. The one hour session is designed for small and midsized company owners, especially those who are thinking of selling and need information on the right way to prepare and follow through to successfully value their business.

“Our research has found that 70 percent of all small and midsized businesses never sell after they are put on the market,” explained Marx. “Selling a business is not like selling a piece of real estate or any other type of asset.”

Marx’s webinar will answer many questions people ask about how to sell and value their business, including ways to assure you maximize the value of your business and other information needed to get a business ready to go to market, how deals are structured and why and when and how to use an intermediary to support you. He will also talk about proven steps to follow to increase the chance of closing the sale of a business.

Marx Group Advisors assists automotive, commercial vehicle and heavy duty aftermarket companies with strategic consulting services for mergers, acquisitions and divestitures, as well as with capital formation for private equity placements.
