In Verne Harnish's book called Scaling Up, he says that "only 4% of US firms ever reach more than $1M, only 0.4% make it to $10M, ... and data indicate that there are similar ratios in other countries." At Exotek, we’ve certainly seen the common challenges that systems integrators face as they scale up their business. In this presentation, we’ll discuss the common barriers as you grow your business and how to overcome them.

Despite what you hear, when a company is valued it involves far more than looking at a financial statement and applying a multiple to a particular earnings number to arrive at a meaningful conclusion of value. Financial statements reflect the company's ability to utilize its assets historically, whereas value should reflect a company's capacity to generate future economic returns. Business valuation requires analysis of both quantitative and qualitative factors that work to increase or decrease value. Join us to understand what's involved in valuing your business and how to put this knowledge to work to maximize value. This webinar includes information that will help system integrators: determine whether their business is transferable or saleable understand why every business has more than one value understand how business value is determined, and identify the drivers of value for their particular firm.
