Ohio Business Brokers Association

2023 Kick-Off Lunch Meeting

January 11, 11:30 AM – 1:00 PM
Mi Pueble Mexican Restaurant, 1993 Hard Rd, Columbus, OH 43235

Happy New Year!

What’s in store for 2023 in the Business Ownership Transfer and Business Sales environment? Attend our “kick-off” meeting to be with your fellow OBBA and NOBBA members along with invited guests for helpful insights.

Join us at Ohio Business Brokers Association for the annual 2023 Kick Off Meeting. (Please note luncheon venue location change).

Beginning our 2023 Speaker Series, our Kick-Off presenter will be Mr. Rick Hulse, currently a Senior Technology Advisor with Team Logic IT of Columbus. He will be speaking at our January 11 OBBA meeting on “Minding The Technology Infrastructure of Businesses For Sale.” Rick has worked in and around technology for 20-plus years in capacities as manager, vice president, and owner, as well as being managing partner of an IT, cybersecurity, and application development firm here in Columbus. During such time he has also acquired and sold tech businesses with an eye on the state of their technology as a significant piece of the diligence puzzle.

As the digital economy and marketplace further demands our attention and commands our efforts, many businesses are susceptible to failure due to the lack of investment in technology infrastructure and security. We have all heard in recent news what happened with Southwest Airlines (Southwest) where inattention to technology advancement caused holiday travel nightmares for many. Talking heads have commented that Southwest experienced the meltdown because of lack of technology investment to update systems and applications. This allowed for handsome returns to their shareholders for quite some time, but we now see the painful result. As it turns out, the company will end-up paying a huge amount toward liabilities incurred from the lack of technology investment. With the Southwest “lookback” pointing to a lack of investment and not “minding” the technology infrastructure.

Scenario for Our Discussion: You may have a business to sell, or you are the entity financing or funding the sale, but have you had discussions with your business owner on what they have invested over the years on their tech? Is the state of the technology of the business for sale helping or hindering the effort to get to a transaction? Is the seller’s bad or non-secure tech seen as a major liability in the eyes of the buyer? Will the buyer need to approach the banker/lender for additional funding to get the business technology and security where it needs to be for success and safety going forward?

Rick will discuss how to assess and what to correct regarding the tech health of a business going up for sale. Don’t miss learning valuable insight to augment knowledge in your practice and service offerings.
