9:00 AM – 10:00 AM   Business Continuity: Having a Back-Up Plan! (Capitol Ballroom 3&4)
                                     Dyanne Ross-Hanson, President & Founder of Exit Planning Strategies

As a business owner, you plan your business’s growth, success, and future. Hopefully this includes your plans for someday transitioning ownership. But what happens if a “triggering event” forces ownership transition prematurely, i.e., disability, death, divorce, disagreement. What are the vital issues that need to be addressed including stock transfer, loss of financial resources/talent and loss of key employees and customers? What about the Real Estate? Do these issues differ between sole-owned and multiple owned businesses?

Learning Objectives:
1. Discover the importance of a Buy Sell Agreement and “must have” provisions.
2. Increase value by decreasing the company’s reliance on the owner for operations.
3. Understand unique planning characteristics of a “sole owner” scenario.
4. Funding alternatives for Death and Disability and significant tax implication of design/structure.
