Maximize Your Veterinary Practice Transition
Powerful Cliff-Notes version! A must-attend session for veterinary practice owners who are 0-8 years away from a transition. The calculation of earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization (EBITDA) can vary from firm to firm. Is this the best corporate offer? Should you sell now or wait five years? Should I sell or keep the real estate? These are just some questions you MUST have answered before you accept an offer.

4:10 PM-5:00 PM

5:10 PM-6:00 PM
