What Is The Business Turnaround Summit?

It’s a fact. The most expensive and risky part of building a business is the start-up phase. And that’s why half of all new businesses fail in the first few years. But what if you were able to skip this start-up phase by taking over existing businesses… so that you could avoid a lot of the stress, and jump straight to potentially generating cash flow and profits? That’s what The Business Turnaround Summit is all about.

Whether you’re a business owner who wants to grow by taking over competitors or expanding into new markets, or you’re an entrepreneur looking for new opportunities, this is YOUR event.

Why Is Now The Perfect Time?

Now is the perfect time for Business turnarounds in Australia. It took long time for all these indicators to align.

The Americans have been doing this for years and many of the richest people in the US are merger and acquisition specialists.

But it’s only really possible in Australia now because of a series of recent events:

The ‘Demographic Cliff’

Baby boomers own as many as 75% of private businesses. Right now, there is a surge of baby boomers who want to retire and they are facing a challenging time selling. There is simply not enough of the younger generation to take over existing concerns. This means there is a huge supply, a lack of demand and a lot of motivated sellers.

The Economic Downturn

The economic downturn has had a crippling effect on small and medium enterprises.Last year, there was a 15% jump in companies entering external administration according to the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) and debt collectors have reported a spike in business-related collections. Many of these businesses can be saved and be made profitable again.

Recent ‘Safe Harbour’ Laws

Up until recently, there was a lot of risks associated with taking over a struggling business. Our legal system ‘punished’ people for trying to save a business. But in September 2018, that all changed with ‘Safe Harbour’ Laws under the Corporations Act. The government introduced new legislation to encourage business takeovers and turnarounds.
