TULSA— HoganTaylor, one of the largest business advisory and public accounting firms in Oklahoma and Arkansas, is pleased to announce the publication of a new book authored by Advisory Partner Robert Wagner, “55 Questions to Ask Before You Sell Your Business.”
The book, which is derived from Wagner’s experience as a CFO and M&A advisor, reveals value-driving principles that make businesses better today and help maximize the value of businesses when they are sold.
“I have a strong belief that business owners deserve the maximum value for the business they have built,” Wagner, said. “I hope that readers come away from ‘55 Questions’ with a strategy for adding value to their business, whether they are ready to sell it today or ten years from now.”
Prior to his time at HoganTaylor, Wagner was CFO of a publicly owned technology company that used acquisitions as a primary growth strategy and has worked as an outsourced CFO and transaction advisor.
“I’ve been on both sides of these transactions and ‘55 Questions’ can be a valuable resource for strategic and financial buyers, as well,” Wagner said. “Anybody looking to gain a deeper understanding of key due diligence factors to consider when contemplating a merger or acquisition can benefit from this book.”
Wagner leads the Advisory service area at HoganTaylor, which includes the Firm’s Transaction Advisory Services practice. The practice works with buyers, sellers, investment bankers and private equity firms performing quality of earnings assignments, due diligence, deal structuring, and post-closing services.
“55 Questions” is 162 pages and is now available in both hardback and paperback formats. Five chapters of the book are also available as a free download.
