How did they find the new buyers and get their attention? How did they make it through the due diligence minefield that kills over half of all transactions?
(PRWEB) January 30, 2012
Corum Group, the international leader in M&A for software, IT and related technology, will broadcast its annual Sellers' Panel on February 2, the second part of its Annual Global Tech M&A Report. "A record number of software executives from 37 countries heard from the big buyers last month," notes Bruce Milne, Founder and CEO of Corum Group. "Now it's time to hear from the sellers and VCs."
Last month’s guest buyers included Google, IBM, Salesforce, RIM, Concur and many other leaders. Now CEOs who recently sold their companies—from John Heyman, who sold his firm for over $1 billion, to executives of the smallest private companies—will give their answers to the key questions surrounding today's technology mergers and acquisitions landscape: How do sellers cope with the complexities, the stress? Who are the new buyers and how do you get their attention? How did you make it through the due diligence minefield that kills over half of all transactions? That, and much more insider advice on getting highest valuation, plus a special report from Brad Feld of the Foundry Group on where Venture Capital is investing now.
This 60-minute webcast will also help software executives understand how, after the sale, to keep their wealth from the clutches of the new tax laws. Pamela Ottavino Rhodes, U.S. Trust Senior Vice President, will present "Building on Success - Business Succession and Estate Planning," with advice on how the dramatic new tax laws will affect sellers. In addition, Corum Group International will present a special report from the World Economic Forum in Davos Switzerland.
