Business Continuation Planning for Analytics Computers

Calvin Sawkins the founder and owner of Analytics Computer Information Systems, Inc. has brought Ron Bauer in as a shareholder. This was not a trivial task and required some professional help.  At Analytics we work closely with Bob Liebhauser of Action Coach.  Bob is a Professional Business Coach and has helped us immensely with the management of Analytics as well as growing our business. Since bringing Bob on as an advisor we have more than doubled in size.   When I asked Bob to help me with my new endeavor, he introduced me to Ken Stiefler of eXits, LLC.  Ken is an Exit Planner for Business Owners he helps business owners with Exit Planning as well as Business Continuation Plans.  He was a major player in the transaction working as the General Contractor overseeing the entire process.  He engaged Mike Dougan of Independent Business Valuation & Appraisals, LLC to do a business Valuation. Once the valuation was completed Ken engaged a financial advisor to help with the necessary insurance and financial needs analysis.  Ken held weekly planning meetings where we worked diligently on the process of bringing Ron in as a shareholder.  Ron being a shareholder in Analytics ensured both our clients and employees that we had a continuation plan in place if something should happen to either Ron or myself. During the meetings with Ken we created draft copies of Buy / Sell Agreements, Shareholder Agreements and other agreements as necessary.   Once we were ready for the legal help we started working with Colleen Belak of Burns Figa & Will.  Colleen is a Business and Intellectual Property Attorney who prepared all the legal documents necessary for the transaction. The entire process was fast tracked and completed in 9 months.   Many thanks to Ken and the team of professional BRAG members that helped us complete our partnership.
