Imagine yourself as a 24-year-old. You get a call that your father has passed away and that you have inherited the responsibility of running the family business, a multi-million-dollar manufacturing firm in Northeast Ohio. Your family, your employees, and your community are counting on you to keep the ship afloat. So what do you do? Andy’s answer: triple your company value and sell at a premium.
Meet Andy Rayburn, the former CEO of Flexalloy, a personal mentor of EPI President/CEO Chris Snider, and the case study subject of “The Perfect Exit.” Andy’s path to the perfect strategic exit was a demonstration of what any privately-held middle market business can do to systematically (and rapidly) increase business value and unlock wealth at the peak of the market. His story is full of successes, pitfalls, and lessons learned that owners and advisors can dissect, understand, and replicate within any business.
Rayburn was the principal architect of this value acceleration strategy and execution, along with his premier management team, which included industry expert and 2016 Thought Leader of the Year, Chris Snider. This is your once-in-a-career opportunity to learn from the owner who not only conquered 5-D obstacles and embodied ultimate transferrable value factor planning; he immortalized the proven notion that exit planning is just good business strategy.
Andy Rayburn and Chris Snider take the stage this September as the opening keynote for the International Summit, giving advisors and owners from across the globe an inside look at the “Flex-it” and breakdown how to make the perfect exit become a reality. Don’t miss this massive industry opportunity; it won’t happen again.
