The MidMarket Alliance hosts a series of sessions as part of the Alliance of M&A Advisors 2015 Summer Conference in Chicago. The Value Growth Program within the conference provides middle market advisors with a focus on the M&A industry future

The MidMarket Alliance will present four Value Growth sessions at the Alliance of M&A Advisors 2015 Summer Conference in Chicago July 7-9, 2015. This new program track will showcase the path to greater success for all consultants, intermediaries and business owners and more efficiency in the M&A marketplace.

By some estimates, as many as 90% of owners who hope to sell their companies are turned way for not being “market ready”. The lost opportunities for M&A advisors are compelling, and the future of the middle market business economy is at stake.

The MidMarket Alliance is developing the ecosystem that can transform such companies to be highly attractive in the marketplace, and bring efficiency to the middle market M&A space. A four session inaugural track will be conducted at the upcoming international summer conference of the Alliance of M&A Advisors, providing guidance on how intermediaries and advisory firms can collaboratively position private companies for maximum value and transaction readiness. The sessions will be conducted by a variety of thought leaders who are leading the M&A process into the future with new perspectives and approaches.

Kenneth H Marks will co-present a session on significantly increasing the value of companies as part of the deal process. The session titled "Taking a Deal from 3x to 7x" is scheduled for 1:30 P.M. CST on July 9, 2015. More information can be obtained at
