Event Details

Sell your business with confidence

You have dedicated years of your life to building a successful business and it has now come time to consider selling.  Most entrepreneurs have never sold a company so the process can be unfamiliar, confusing and laden with emotion. The stakes are high and the outcome can vary widely so it is important that you get this right.  Attend the Exit This Way seminar and hear from business transition experts on a variety of key topics including:

  • Business Planning to Maximize Your Exit 

  • Tax Considerations Before Selling

  • Valuation and the Selling Process

  • Understanding Legal Considerations

  • After Selling Your Business: From Concentrated Assets to Diversified Portfolios

Attending this session will give you the information and contacts that you need to successfully sell your business with confidence.


This seminar will be most relevant to owners of profitable companies with revenues in the $5M to $75M range.

Business Planning to Maximize Your Exit
How do owners maximize the value of the business they’ve poured their life into? By structuring that company to have steady, profitable revenue and run independently of their involvement. Whether you’re looking for a quick exit or just believe that every business should be built to sell, join Bellrock as we dive into the foundational systems the most successful businesses implement to maximize their return on time and investment.



Matthew Baker, Baker Tilly

More Money in Your Pocket - Tax Considerations Before Selling your Business
Tax planning is a critical component of most transactions, and can have a significant impact on the ultimate realization of value from your business. Regardless of the motivation, once you have made the choice to sell your business, tax considerations and planning should remain as one of the key items to be addressed. Matt will discuss some of the key concepts that may be helpful in preparing for the sale of your business.

Tax planning opportunities exist whether you sell shares, assets, or pursue a hybrid sale strategy, which combines both share and asset elements of a sale. Matt will also discuss the benefits and drawbacks of the different sale structures, as well as other common planning opportunities and potential tax traps including access to the lifetime capital gains exemption, tax deferral opportunities, and recent changes to tax legislation that may affect your future plans for the sale proceeds.


Axel Christiansen, Renaissance M&A     

604-928-5522 |


Understanding Valuation and M&A Techniques
How companies are valued can be a bit of a mystery to entrepreneurs who have not sold a business previously. Enterprise value, capitalized earnings, discounted cash flow, EBITDA multiples, synergistic premiums, working capital pegs, etc...what does it all mean? Axel will explain the art and science of valuation so that you can embark on a sale process with a value expectation based on appropriate valuation concepts.

The best way to maximize value is to conduct a well executed professional selling process which ensures that you reach the right buyers, provide them the right information at the right time and maximize competitive tension. Kevin will outline the techniques used by professional M&A advisors in a typical sale process. Since most transactions will face a few 'bumps' - common transaction challenges will also be discussed.


Wade Winkler, Alexander Holburn Beaudin + Lang    

604-484-1704 |


Selling a Business - Understanding the Legal Considerations
Wade regularly advises purchasers and sellers in private M&A transactions. He understands that the sale of his clients’ businesses represents the most significant business transaction in their lives.

If you are considering a sale of your business, it is important to start preparing early and inform yourself about the different stages of a sale transaction from a legal perspective. Wade will take you through the preliminary steps of entering into a letter of intent and confidentiality agreement, the due diligence process, negotiating a purchase agreement and closing and post-closing matters.

Wade will provide you with key insights from his extensive experience negotiating purchase agreements throughout the Province and across a number of industry sectors and ways to reduce risk.



Cindy Huang & Michael Schaab, Leith Wheeler

After Selling Your Business: From Concentrated Assets to Diversified Portfolios

You’ve grown your wealth by concentrating your time and capital in one or a small number of businesses. Now that you’ve sold the business which created your wealth, what should you do with your capital?

Cindy and Michael will talk about the importance of diversifying your risk to protect and grow your capital, albeit at a slower rate than you did as an entrepreneur. Using a diversified portfolio of investments, you will become a partial owner of many different businesses in different industries and regions around the world.
