Transitioning ownership of your construction business: Valuation, buyers, market trends and executive compensation and retention

Event Info

Register for This Event

All businesses must transition ownership and leadership positions at some point, whether because of retirement, resignation, dismissal, or other unplanned or opportunistic circumstances. Within the construction industry, the prevalence of aging business owners is building a significant need for transition planning. Despite this trend and the awareness organizations have about the importance of this type of strategic planning, many construction businesses do not have a formal ownership transition plan in place.

Join us for the third session in a series of webinars exploring the fundamentals of planning and executing successful ownership transitions.

This presentation will provide a basic overview of how construction businesses are valued and will highlight the key issues that may impact the valuation of your business as well as how different exit strategies could impact the value.

We will also explore current trends in the mergers and acquisitions market, including:

  • Where we are seeing comparable and transaction multiples
  • Who we are seeing as buyers in the construction industry
  • Challenges we are seeing in deals getting done and strategies used to mitigate them

Finally, Chris Henderson of M3 Insurance will provide an overview of executive-level benefits that can be used to attract and retain talent in the construction industry, because your management team may also be an option for the transition of your business.
