Upper Saddle River, NJ (February 23, 2012) As the markets begin their slow climb back this year, many business owners and entrepreneurs have emerged from hiding to once again consider a serious move to either buy a new business, or sell their existing one.

If the time has come to consider buying or selling a food or beverage business, it is important to understand that there are many issues to address. Whether the company is being bought out by family members or acquired by a multinational consumer packaged goods (CPG) conglomerate, having a plan and knowing your options can make a big difference. For sellers, 2012 is seeing "sales multiples" return to pre-recession levels, making this year an ideal time to test out the waters. And for buyers, there's nothing more satisfying than the ability to control your own destiny, or add a new acquisition to an existing product line.

The Food Institute is hosting a one-hour webinar on March 13, 2012 which will address the key steps to a successful sale/purchase, including finding the right fit, determining a company's worth, the importance of the seller, due diligence, finding the right team to manage the deal and finally, closing the deal.
