Veteran Pro AV business owners who are interested in developing and implementing the right kind of succession plan that best serves their long-term needs should make it a point to register now for the March 6, 2013 InfoComm Webinar on "Mergers & Acqusitions" that is being sponsored exclusively by Stampede Presentation Products, Inc. According to Stampede President & COO Kevin Kelly, Stampede worked closely with InfoComm and presenter John Stiernberg of Stiernberg Consulting to create an information-packed
presentation that defines the issues that pertain specifically to Pro AV business owners.
"Mergers and acquisitions are transforming a number of American industries including the Pro AV community," Kelly said today, "and for many of our founder-managed businesses the timing couldn't be better — but only if they make the right decisions and have all of the right information at their disposal. The March 6 InfoComm Webinar, which we are proud to sponsor exclusively, covers all of the strategic issues and then some."
According to Kelly, the March 6 Webinar will cover issues like defining succession planning, mergers, acquisitions and strategic alliances in the context of the ProAV community; discussion of multiple exit strategy options; how to establish parameters for successful exit strategies; clarification of the differences that exist among AV integrators, design firms and manufacturers; and finally, how to establish the key financial and non-financial metrics that have an impact on the planning process.
Stampede is sponsoring a total of four InfoComm Webinars in 2013 and each of them will focus on how to develop and implement a business succession plan that best benefits the owner and the employees who play such a vital role in keeping the Pro AV industry's businesses vital and relevant to their customers. The remaining webinars in this series, “Successful AV Industry Mergers & Acquisitions” and “Critical Success Factors for Your Long-Term Plan”, are scheduled, respectively, for March 13 and March 20, both at 1 p.m EST.
