This year's Exit Conference froms part of the Moneyweb Money Expo in Sandton.

It is easier to invest in private companies than it is to unlock value from these investments. While the private equity/ venture capital investment space is gaining more and more momentum in Africa, the process of exiting these investments remains a challenge. What many investors and entrepreneurs don’t realise is that positioning a business for a successful exit already starts in the due diligence process – even before investment. Exit-centric business building ensures that growth is engineered so that companies become enticing prospects for stakeholders to do business with – and possibly acquire. But in order to survive due diligence and receive premium valuations, companies must be able to clearly articulate their value proposition, business model, financial profile and total addressable market/ positioning. 

The Knife Capital Exit Conference will focus on the process of reaching a successful exit. Topics include: positioning a company for a local- and international exit, performing sell-side due diligence, corporate venturing/ insourcing innovation, intellectual property considerations and South African Exit success story case studies.

The speaker profile include M&A experts with experience in exiting local private companies as well as dynamic entrepreneurs who have built and sold their high-growth ventures.
