Stone Pigman Co-Sponsors From Work to Wealth
Scott T. Whittaker, a firm member and chair of the Business Section of the New Orleans-based law firm Stone Pigman Walther Wittmann L.L.C., is teaming with New Orleans area businesses and financial consultants to present the From Work to Wealth Conference, an Oct. 14 conference for business owners, CEOs and CFOs who want to learn more about selling their company.
"The sale of a company could be the most important, life-changing and financially rewarding decision that a business owner or CEO may ever make. It is certainly not the place for "on the job training. Knowing how much a business is worth, how to structure and close the transaction and the legal implications of your decisions are vital to turning the sale of your business into your professional and financial crowning achievement," said Whittaker.
For more than 20 years, Whittaker has represented clients in a wide variety of transactions, including buying, selling and merging companies; private placements of securities and venture capital transactions; joint ventures; roll-ups, spin-offs and split-ups; and all phases of real estate acquisitions, development and financing.
"There are a number of financial, business and personal questions that owners must answer before deciding to sell their business or merge with another company. Our goal is to identify and answer those questions and help business owners prepare for this once in a lifetime event," said Whittaker.
From Work to Wealth is scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 14, 2004, from 8:30 a.m. - 12 p.m. in the Mardi Gras Rooms on the 11th Floor of the Pan American Life Conference Center at 601 Poydras St. in New Orleans. The cost for the conference is $129 per attendee.
Topics scheduled for discussion include:
- When is the best time to sell a business?
- How much is your business worth?
- Financial and wealth considerations before and after the sale;
- The Merger & Acquisition Process;
- Structuring the transaction; and
- Closing the deal.
