Cashing in : Create, Improve and Realise the Value in Your Business
How do you negotiate your way through the maze of starting up your business, growing it and even selling it on? In this book, Paul Barrow takes the reader through case studies of several businesses - both the successes and failures - as each grows and takes on different forms of finance. Along the way, showing how businesses maximize and release their value, he covers: raising start-up finance and early funding; arranging growth finance - both equity and debt; raising money through public offerings - in particular, the Alternative Investment Market; finding, negotiating, buying and funding acquisitions; and selling your own business - getting the right price and the right deal for you. In this practical, hands-on guide, Paul Barrow shows you the theory and the reality and, using checklists and pre-prepared documents, always directs you back to your own company and what steps you should take to grow, fund, acquire and sell.
