Exit Readiness – Presented by Aqua M&A, McCarthy Tétrault, with Special Guest from Intel Corporation




May 18, 2021

Time of event


McCarthy Tétrault and Aqua M&A are pleased to invite you to join them for a seminar on exit readiness.

You will hear lessons learned and best practices both from CEOs who have successfully sold their tech and life science companies and from leading acquirers. Based on interviews with over 30 CEOs and their acquirers, you will hear what the CEOs did well and what they wish they did differently when building their companies. Special guest Dev Sirur from Intel’s M&A team will provide a buyer’s perspective on strategic exits.

This workshop will provide practical advice for any company, covering:

  • M&A 101 - How tech & medtech M&A works and the latest trends
  • Ensuring your company is ‘exit ready’, while focusing on building a great company
    • What to do (and not do) when building your company to make it much easier to exit...whenever the time comes
    • Raising money and strategic investments – and how this can impact your ability to exit
    • The importance of building relationships with potential acquirers
    • The value of IP and patents when exiting
    • Exit strategies - how and when to create one
  • When to sell - what are your timing options for selling a company
    • Timing, and having a Plan B
    • Valuation
  • Exiting
    • How to approach negotiations, term sheets, and due diligence
    • Buyer/acquirer fit
    • Integration planning


Comments from past attendees:

  • “This seminar made me step back and think about my long term strategy in a very helpful way, which I hadn’t previously. Extremely useful.”

  • “I’ve attended several seminar like on exits, and this was the first one where I learned something – great session.”

  • “I highly recommend this workshop to any CEO, whether you think you might sell in 6 months or 5 years.”
