www.Ceo4ady.wordspot.com the blog which offers a “perspective from a corner office” as well as commentary on politics, the economy, business and entrepreneurship is pleased to announce we have exceeded 40,000+ views since our launch in December, 2008.

We thank all our readers for your continued support as we continue to focus on the need to support entrepreneurial solutions during this current period of economic recession. We continue to support the initiative to create and fund the United States Office of Entrepreneurship to stimulate innovation and entrepreneurial endeavors.

We have been writing of late about the American Recovery Act and the failure of the act to support entrepreneurial ventures. We have also commented extensively about the need for President Obama to portray the American economy in a more positive light. His continued descriptions of the economy in crisis and usage of the term catastrophe is only serving to further erode consumer and investor confidence.

We look forward to the President’s address this evening and trust that he will present the American economy in a more hopeful manner.

In this installment of the series, A Journey To Acquire, we will explore the first meeting with the target company that we are attempting to acquire in conjunction with a private equity firm partner. Previously we have written about initial elements of the process including, partner selection, composing a target list and making initial contact with a target company.

Our initial meeting with the target company, will be to gain a perspective on the Chief Executive Officer and his sense for the potential viability for a transaction based on his knowledge of and experience with the Board of Directors that would have to approve any transaction. After several calls and e-mails we were able to confirm our initial meeting.

I spent a restless evening, the night prior to the meeting, pondering the possibilities should we have a receptive meeting with the prospective acquisition’s CEO. In the morning I awoke early and prepared for the meeting. I had to pick up an associate from the private equity partner that I have elected to work with, that was flying in to join me for our meeting. His flight arrived on time and we proceeded to the industrial community where the company is headquartered.

The company is a manufacturing company with 2 facilities located within a mile of each other. We arrived at the company headquarters and drove around the primary manufacturing facility which comprises a city block before parking and entering the offices for our meeting.

 The target company meets our criteria for having a revenue base of $200 to $500 million. The company also has an acceptable Ebitda and is in a category that provides additional roll up opportunities with other complimentary companies in the category. We will spend the next few hours meeting with CEO and touring the manufacturing facilities. Following that we will make an assessment based on what we have seen and heard as to whether it makes sense for us to continue to pursue the target company.

In our next installment we will share what we gained from this initial meeting and what our next steps in the process will be.
