Martin Magida participated as a guest speaker for The Executive Breakfast Club's and discussed "Building Shareholder Values in Closely Held Businesses" at Marcum LLP in New York City.

The Executive Breakfast Club nurtures a select group of CEOs who focus on the big picture and want to make a difference in society. Members include CEOs, Presidents, and Managing Directors of $5M - $1B companies. Meetings take place on the final Friday of each month. Membership is by-invitation only. Business attire is required. For details, visit www.executivebreakfastclub.com or call 800-493-1334.

 While public companies focus on stock price and EPS, owners of closely held companies often focus on maximizing income, being the boss, providing jobs, creating a legacy, or maintaining a certain lifestyle. The activities and operations that made your company successful may NOT enhance its value to a buyer. You may need to make changes to make it more attractive – and should start long before the sale. Martin will discuss:

• Identifying and managing risks – customer/vendor concentration, misaligned compensation plans, effort required to make an acquisition, capital requirements
• Value is in the eye of the acquirer
• How to accurately depict the company’s earnings potential to a buyer
• Developing a game plan to position your company for eventual sale

The location of the event was Marcum LLP's New York, NY office at:

750 Third Ave. (11th Flr)
