Miller Martin PLLC Presents: Anatomy of a Deal Part 2

ATDC Community Room (Room 2525)
Address: 75 5th St NW, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA

Whether you buy another business as part of your growth strategy, or sell your business as part of your exit strategy, eventually every entrepreneur will be part of an M&A transaction.  For many entrepreneurs, however, that transaction is a case of first impression.  This class is designed to give entrepreneurs a hands-on simulated M&A experience to help prepare in advance and avoid common pitfalls for the unprepared.

In this class, you will be the directors of Company X, a company considering the acquisition of TargetCo.  Our class is the exercise of going through the Asset Purchase Agreement and the due diligence process to expose these “directors” to the kinds of things that come up in buying and selling businesses.

We will provide a background package on TargetCo, a high tech staffing company with locations in several states, a combination of full-time corporate employees and temporary staffed employees, owned and licensed intellectual property, leased and owned real property, and litigation experience.   Then, as a class, the attorneys at Miller & Martin will present to the “directors” the findings from our due diligence examination, and a discussion of the available means of dealing with discovered challenges.

    ATDC’s "Run It by the Buyers" sessions have been created to get you real-world feedback on your sales pitch.
    Like it or not, remote selling is here to stay. A recent McKinsey study found that 90% of B2B decision-makers expect the remote, digital selling/buying model will stick around and 75% believe it is just as effective (or even more effective) than pre-COVID sales methods.
    Each month, Run It by the Buyers, gives 4 ATDC portfolio companies the opportunity to deliver their sales pitch via Zoom to a 3-person panel of Atlanta-based executives from leading enterprises and get an immediate critique with actionable tips to help you make a greater impact, ensuring that your Ideal Client (IC) will quickly see the value your product represents.
