GLGA is hosting a CEO/President’s Roundtable Focus Forum on Wednesday, June 13, 2018, at Jimmy’s Charhouse in Elk Grove Village, IL.  Jim Russell and Al Reijmer of New Direction Partners will be discussing the mergers and acquisitions climate as well as financial investments that make sense for the future.

With the current strong economy, newly enacted investment tax benefits and overall business optimism that we are witnessing today, many printers are feeling more optimism then they have in years. But, now they are starting to wonder, “Of the many options for long term investments, which bring the most long term value to my company?” In this Executive Roundtable, we will review the current state of the industry and what investment considerations will provide the most bang for your buck in terms of building value in your business. Certain segments of the industry continue to add value to a business. Others may be the proverbial money pit.  At what point, and to which markets do you jump in? The goal for every company is to increase the value of the organization through smart and rational investment coupled with intense fiscal responsibility. It’s a balancing act to be sure, but there is seldom a reward without associated risk. We’ll review examples and parameters that have provided industry leading success and shareholder value.

Don’t miss this opportunity to hear directly from M&A experts and gain insight that can benefit your company. The program includes lunch.
