Blog – July 2017


Last week Prism’s MD, Peter Watson, was back at the Cranfield School of Management co-presenting a two-day Selling Your Business Masterclass.  Peter has had a long association with the Cranfield through their highly acclaimed Business Growth Programme (BGP) on which he has been both visiting lecturer and delegate counsellor over the past 10 years. 

The 2-day programme covered both building value in the business prior to sale, as well as the process of sale itself. James Allen of Birketts LLP gave an excellent summary of the legal process, plus there were also contributions from a couple of people that have been through the process when selling their businesses.

Peter commented:

“It was a great couple of days. Some really interesting businesses and feedback was very positive so it looks like it will be a regular fixture. For those interested in finding out more about how to realise maximum value (without being sold to!), drop me an email and I will ensure you are on the circulation for future events”.

Our research continues to show that the market for M&A in the Technology sector remains strong with healthy deal flows throughout June and into July.  If you are minded to do something in the near future, this masterclass could be ideal.  In any event, do call us for a confidential, no obligations chat so we can advise on the best approach for you and your business.
