What Your Investment Banker Won't Tell You
In this episode of the Maximize Business Value podcast, our host, Tom Bronson, sits down with our guest and investment banker, Oliver Cone, Senior Vice President at Bulkley Capital, an M&A Advisory firm based in Dallas. They talk about the things a business owner should think about long before putting their business on the market and answer questions on raising growth capital and understanding your business’ opinion of value. Oliver and Bulkley have really separated from the pack in terms of bringing value to their business owner clients. Tom and Oliver are both members of Provisors, a professional networking group here in Dallas, with groups throughout the country. As a business owner, you will need to talk to an investment banker. Listen in and be ready!
