The Atlanta Business Chronicle turned to Lindsey Sykes, Partner and Service Line Leader for Bennett Thrasher LLP’s financial reporting and assurance department, for expert commentary in its article, “Plan Ahead to Sell, Merge or Buy a Business,” on Nov. 7, 2014.
The article discusses the uptick in mergers and acquisitions for companies of various sizes in 2014. Sykes discusses the three key components for preparing for a business sale: establish relationships with appropriate professionals, such as investment bankers, lawyers, and accountants; get the “house in order” by gathering reliable financial information and documenting customer relationships; and remain focused on the business during the transaction. He also notes that “there’s just a lot of dollars still available to make acquisitions.” Click here for the full article.
