M&A Secrets Behind the Curtain, Printer's Edge Podcast, Rock Lamanna, LaManna Alliance, Print Business for sale

Print business owners who don't know M&A secrets will be at a disadvantage during a sale. In this episode of the Printer's Edge Podcast, Rock LaManna and Ken Okel pull back the curtain on how mergers and acquisitions firms work and how certain policies can cost you big bucks.

Some of the M&A secrets include:

  • Why it's worth paying a lawyer to look at the contract.
  • How exclusivity can be negotiated. 
  • How a tail could really hurt your bottom line.
  • Why you must define the timeline and objectives.
  • How chemistry and trust should feature in the deal.

The more you know, the more you'll be empowered during an M&A deal.

Making a Difference

There's still time to support Rock's special charity project: The Special Needs Equipment Fund. It was created because too many kids with disabilities need special equipment but their families can’t afford the cost. To learn more click here.

For any amount you donate to the fund (honor system), Rock will give you a free 30 minute strategy call about your printing business. Ask him anything and we’ll come up with a game plan.

After you’ve made your tax deductible gift, send Rock an email (rock@rocklamanna.com) with “Fund Call” in the subject line and we’ll set up a time for your call.

The fund is administered through United Way and 100% of your gift goes to the cause. Thank you for your kind consideration of this opportunity.
