Family Business Breakfast Series

Buying, Selling and Raising Capital in a Family Firm: Lessons from the Battlefield

Thriving family firms often require capital to finance organic or acquisition growth. Yet, most family owners and even their best non-family executives can be so deeply engaged in operations, sales and production, and so skilled in these areas, that there is little time or urgency to learn how to grow by acquisition. Whether buying a company, selling off a division, or raising outside growth capital, family involvement adds complex dynamics that need to be addressed.

Our November breakfast builds on the content of our September panel of identifying new opportunities, with a way to look at financing opportunities. This session will be led by Richard L. Narva, Esq., founder of Boston-based Narva & Company, Advisors to Family Enterprise, speaking about buying, selling and raising growth capital. Narva has more than 45 years of experience as a mergers & acquisitions lawyer, was the third generation CEO of his family's firm, and has advised more than 400 families and their business enterprises.

Families at this event will understand the culture and language used in raising corporate finance and open their eyes to strategies used to grow the business. The facilitator of this event has asked that company CFOs attend as well, to engage in the discussion.

Note to advisors: This event is only open to members of family businesses. Please forward to any clients it may help.
