Dead on Arrival: How to Avoid the Legal Mistakes That Could Kill Your Startup
The most important event of a startup company's life is the exit, meaning the sale or initial public offering. At exit, the founders & team may cash out & realize the benefits of many long years of hard work. The M&A market is strong now, & many startup companies are actively seeking a buyer. Other startup companies should be preparing for an eventual sale by taking steps to increase their marketability & limit the risk of a failed acquisition.
This presentation will cover:
1) When to start thinking about an exit
2) How to ensure the maximum after-tax returns to the sellers
3) Transitioning from being a founder to becoming an employee of an acquirer
4) Using earn outs to maximize sales proceeds
5) How to retain your most valuable asset - people - until a sale occurs
6) Using intellectual property to make your company an attractive target
Silicon Valley attorney Roger Royse will address not only the legal aspects of preparing for M&A but also the practical business & planning issues involved in a successful sale.
Please come with questions, scenarios, & comments.
