20 Jan Perkins Addresses Western Oklahoma Manufacturers
Business valuation and best practices in the purchase and sale of private companies was the topic of a four hour presentation provided by David L. Perkins, Jr. on Tuesday, January 19th in Weatherford, Oklahoma. The presentation was arranged by Paul Walenciak, an extension agent with the Oklahoma Manufacturing Alliance. It was underwritten by the Western Oklahoma Business Commercialization Center.
Attendees were a prominent group of owners of manufacturing firms located in Western Oklahoma. Company sizes ranged from annual revenues of $500,000 to over $25 million.
“I had seen Mr. Perkins speak to a group of business owners a few years ago. A group arranged by Bank of Oklahoma,” said Walenciak. “He did a great job then and I think our group of manufactures left yesterday with some real insights they can put to use in maximizing the value of their business,” he continued.
David Perkins is the managing director of Acquisition Advisors, the M&A firm of choice for buyers and sellers of mid-size private companies.
“A great group of owners and we had a lively discussion,” commented Perkins. “They have a lot at stake. If I can help them get more of what the deserve, I’m fulfilled.”
Each attendee received a complimentary copy of a book written by Perkins titled “A Concise Overview of Business Valuation.” Attendees also received a printed copy of an Acquisition Advisors’ “Best Practice Map” titled “Maximizing Business Sale Value” which provides virtually every element, step and task involved in selling a business for maximum value.
