2021 - The Best Time in Over a Decade to Sell Your Company?

The combination of a robust economic recovery out of Covid and pending capital gain tax rate increases, coupled with rising interest rates, makes 2021 the best time in many years to evaluate the sale of your business. Peter Schaefer and Paul Reilly of New Direction Partners, two of the most experienced investment bankers in the printing and packaging industries, will guide you through the complexities of today’s M&A world. They will explain how pending capital gains tax increases can wipe away any improvements that might be achieved by waiting for your profits to increase, as well as how rising interest rates will impact the ability of buyers to complete acquisitions.  

In this session you will learn about:

  • The latest M&A trends in the printing and packaging industry
  • How the proposed legislative and regulatory changes are likely to affect overall mergers & acquisitions in the printing and packaging industry
  • What printing and packaging businesses should think about when considering a sale
  • The perspective of potential buyers in this environment
  • … and more.

Who should attend? CEO’s, owners, presidents and anyone responsible for the successful sale of a print business.
