Event Speakers


Kevin Lindsey

Founder and managing partner, The DVS Group | Part 1

The competitive landscape is shifting: Develop an acquisition strategy to thrive

The transition tidal wave. The silver tsunami. Private equity overhang. The end of the bull market. Call it what you will — one thing is for certain. Change is coming. 68 percent of all private businesses will change ownership in the next 15 years. Will you eat or be eaten? 70-90 percent of acquisitions fail. Prepare for the coming change and develop a strategy to beat the odds.

Using real-life case studies from DVS deals, Kevin Lindsey will explore: 1) Developing your investment thesis, 2) Resource requirements, 3) Deal sourcing strategy.

With actionable insight for both individual and corporate buyers, this presentation will give you an understanding of what it means to “wave the magic wand” and professionalize an acquisition strategy.
