Book: "Cracking the Code: An Entrepreneur's Guide to Growing Your Business Through M&A" by John Bly

Mergers and Acquisitions can seem daunting to entrepreneurs, but it doesn’t have to be. Growth through M&A is a simple process that can yield huge rewards if the numbers work, if the company is a good match, and if you are willing to accept some risk. Perhaps the most important aspects of M&A are having the desire, strategy, and structure to make it happen – if you have that then you can take your company to new heights with explosive growth and a minimum amount of money down.

This book serves as a guide to effectively find good deals for entrepreneurial businesses in the 1 to 30 million dollar range. It provides a blueprint for how to tackle issues such as determining whether it’s a good fit, due diligence, structuring the deal, valuation, tax issues, and how to land the perfect catch. For M&A to succeed, these matters must be addressed first. John will show you ways to find potential spots for rapid growth and accomplish, on a smaller level, what the bigger companies do. By breaking M&A down into approachable elements, you will find that your entire outlook on the topic will be transformed.

The Author, John Bly, will faciliate this very engaging discussion.

During this roundtable we'll:

· share our own experiences in this area in our businesses
· share best practices from our own personal experience or from industry thought leaders
· share ideas on how to improve the area within our businesses to fuel growth

Note: We are looking for people to facilitate book discussions in 2015, so please don’t hesitate to contact me if there is a book that you’re passionate about and would like to share with the group. The meetings take place the second Friday of every month. Thanks!
