Your business may be your largest single asset. Improving financial performance provides higher profits and increases the value. Through the first of its kind, revolutionary business model, “Managed IT Services Business Model Report,” co-authored by GAP and Continuum, attendees will see where the opportunities are for increased profitability and higher value. With this business model, dealers have been able to achieve over 60% pre-labor gross margins with managed IT services.

Whether you plan on selling your business, acquiring another in order to expand or simply want to increase the value of your business, there are many questions about the best path to take. Mitch and Chris will walk through some of the common scenarios based on their experience in the acquisitions marketplace, answering questions throughout webinar. Due to the tremendous feedback from this session at Navigate 2014 by Continuum last month, this information is being made available to all partners through this webinar.
