About the Program

Are you interested in finding a new home for your publishing house? Or, are you ready to expand by acquiring another company?

Understanding the value of your company and that of other publishers is critical to moving ahead either as a seller or a buyer. Members of The Fisher Company will share their expertise and knowledge of how to analyze your press through a variety of methods and value-building opportunities.

This session will cover:

  • Defining, understanding, and creating value for your publishing house
  • How to approach and measure the financial value of your assets and/or company
  • Trends and shifts in M&A due to COVID-19, including opportunities for growth, realizing efficiency, and increasing diversity among your staff

Selling your own company, or buying a new one, is possibly the biggest decision you will ever make as a publisher. Join Howard and Miriam in this IBPA PubU Online webinar to discuss the fundamentals of value, financial approaches, and opportunities in our evolving publishing industry.
