Tawnya Gilreath - Increase Business Value 30% in the Year Leading up to Sale

Tawnya Gilreath of LA Business Pros talks about a 12 month Value Driver process they use to Guarantee a 30% increase in the value of a business from the time they initially value your business.

Transcript: 

Tawnya: Basically, we put together a systematic process where we could help business owners that want to increase the value of their business before putting it on the market, and it is a 12 month program. Now, understand that some business owners are burned out and they don't want to wait 12 months. However, for those that do, we guarantee we will be able to sell their business for at least 30% more than the initial valuation when we started. So, when you think about that in terms of, if a business is worth $2M at the beginning, that means 12 months later, we guarantee that we're going to be able to sell it for $2.6M. 

Bill: So, by working with you and you coming in and saying, "You've got to fix this, put processes and systems in place, work on all these different areas," they're going to drive up the value of their business 30% and you guys stand behind that? 

Tawnya: We do stand behind that, and what we do is, let's go back to that $2M vs. $2.6M, let's say we only sell that business for $2.5M. Not only does the business owner derive the benefit of that extra half-million dollars in revenue from the sales price, but in addition to that, we refund all the consulting fees that he paid during that 12 month period, during that process. So it's absolutely risk free to that business owner.

Hans Sperling - Use Caution When International Buyers Come Calling

Hans Sperling, Attorney - Sperling Law Corporation discusses some of the precautions he helps his clients think through when International Buyers approach them for purchase of the business.

Transcript: 

Hans: I mean, I think, even in domestic transaction when you kind of see the money from working a long time to find a good buyer, people want to strike while the iron's hot. A lot of what we do is say, let's slow down a little bit and make sure we do this right. But, with international, as your saying, it's that much more risky. Yeah, they could be trying to get your intellectual property, that's very common, we protect you from that. And the other thing is, if you're manufacturing or you have some technology that might be sensitive, I mean it's not necessarily obvious, it's not necessarily a missile, it could be there's magnets, lasers, sensors, all kinds of things you might not think of as being military sensitive. There's a whole other area of the law that covers that, so that could be an issue. There's also something called a foreign corrupt practices act, which, when you're dealing internationally, you have to be very careful, because in some cultures, they might not look like bribes, but gifts and so are common, and you have to be really careful to stay on the right side of the law, especially US law.

Transcript: 

Bill: When it comes to intellectual property issues, there's always a lot to think about, and one of the best minds in the country is Marc Hankin. 

Marc: A little bit of planning will really prevent a big problem down the road, and intellectual property protection is somewhat confusing, you really should talk to someone who's a specialist at doing this, but not doing that costs so much more down the road because you haven't protected your most important asset which is your technology. You have to, first of all, protect your technology, protect your inventions, your innovation. Number two is worry about, when you're buying a product from someone else, whether you're a value edit reseller or distributor, if you're getting products manufactured for less money, for example, in China or somewhere else, when you sell those products here in the United States, you have to worry about whether someone has rights that can block you, and perhaps come after you and sue you successfully for infringing their rights.

Tim Voorhees - Minimizing Capital Gains with Advanced Techniques

In this 1 minute highlight, Tim Voorhees, Managing Partner - MatsenVoorhees Law discusses an overview of a tax reduction technique called "Capital Gains Split Dollar".

Transcript: 

Tim: We started with charitable remainder trust back in the 1980s, but the industry and the tax code have both evolved to the point where there are now much more sophisticated vehicles. One of the clever techniques we've developed over the last couple years is a solution referred to as, Capital Gains, Split Dollar. We simply have a client with an appreciated business have the buyer put the money in a trust for the benefit of our seller, our client, and when the buyer puts the money in the trust they receive a Split Dollar Agreement, so there's no current tax on the transaction. Moreover, if the client invests the money in the trust tax efficiently, there's only a very small tax, and the wealth grows tax efficiently, so the client can then borrow it out with tax-free loans throughout his or her lifetime, and know that the balance will pass tax-free to the children. And, when you look at the benefits of that type of Capital Gains, Split Dollar solution, you see that the client literally can have two, three, four times more wealth as opposed to just selling a business in a taxable transaction.

Juan Ortega explains business coaching, why it works, and why your company should consider it. 
 

 Transcript: 


One of the things that we've all learned through different research and studies that have been done is that 80% of the chance of us getting our next customer is going to be from a customer that we've already met or serviced at one point. Only 20% of those next sales are coming from people we've never met. Of that 20%, almost 90% of that is coming from referrals, so it might have been someone that I've never met, but it's coming through somebody that I've done business with. So, what I ask my business owners to do is, do a mini-research study in your business. If you find that 80% of your business is coming from your existing clients and referrals, then devote 80% of your resources and allocate the time and money to focus on it. So, it needs to be equivalent to the business that's coming in at the moment.
