The National Association for Printing Leadership (NAPL) and the Mailing and Fulfillment Service Association (MFSA) are teaming up to present the industry’s first M&A Conference on September 24th and 25th at the Crystal Gateway Marriott in Arlington, Va.
The event is exclusively for owners and senior executives of privately held graphic communications or mailing and fulfillment businesses who want a better understanding of strategic growth and transition opportunities in a rapidly changing business and industry environment.
“In these trying economic times, business leaders need to be aware of all their options for strategic growth and transition,” said Joseph P. Truncale, Ph.D., NAPL President and Chief Executive Officer. “Our members have asked for an event such as this and we are excited to be able to partner with MFSA to offer it. Attendees will not only hear from a broad cross-section of M&A experts, but learn first-hand about the transaction experiences of their industry peers.”
“This is an astounding, singular opportunity,” said MFSA President and Chief Executive Officer Ken Garner. “There is simply no other event like it, and regardless of whether our members are currently interested in merging or not, this conference will provide them with a wealth of education and unparalleled expertise.”
The conference is the only industry event completely dedicated to the subject of mergers and acquisitions and how they relate to growth strategies and succession planning. Attendees will hear from a variety of experts, including attorneys, tax and estate planning professionals, lenders, and private equity investors, as well as industry leaders with experience in M&A activities. Among the conference topics:
• How to determine if growth through acquisition is right for your company.
• How to deal with M&A in family owned businesses.
• How to structure a strategic transaction.
• How to explore financing options for M&A.
• How to maximize the value of your business.
• Industry M&A trends and what they mean for your business.
• Insights into post-merger integration.
• Tax and estate planning.
The M&A Conference is not intended solely for those currently interested in buying or selling a business, but for business owners and senior executives in the industry who want to understand the current business transaction environment and their strategic growth options. In the graphic communications and mailing and fulfillment industries, tomorrow will belong to those who prepare for it today, and attendees at this two-day event will ensure that they are well prepared whenever the right opportunity arises.
