David Hastie to be a panelist at Toronto Business Transitions Forum


David Hastie, Regional Director, Ontario, will be joining the panel for the session ‘Who Will Buy Your Business? Understanding Your Liquidity Options’ at the Toronto Business Transitions Forum on May 16, 2017. 

Session description: You’re contemplating ways to turn years of hard work into cash, but what are your options? Should you look to your senior management team as potential investors, assuming they are interested and able to invest in your business? Should you look outside your firm for strategic buyers? Could Private Equity, Search Funds or other entities provide liquidity opportunities? This session will help you learn what distinguishes different classes of buyers, depending on your size of business, and what other options you have to generate capital. The panel will address the pros and cons of various options that could allow you to take some chips off the table.

  • Strategic buyers
  • Private equity
  • Buying out partners
  • Management buyouts
  • Other recapitalization options
