Baby Boomer Exodus, Operators Looking for Trouble and Thoroughbreds
Join us for an exciting Fall M&A program at Base 110 -- the downtown Lexington venue crafted for entrepreneurs, innovators and creators -- followed by an exclusive experience at The Thoroughbred Club, the picturesque manor on the gently rolling horse country landscape near Keeneland. This is your chance to gain valuable insights, interact with industry leaders, build valuable connections and discover new opportunities. RSVP for an event that promises to be both informative and fun!
First, dive into the world of the looming Baby Boomer Small Business Exodus. These Baby Boomers employ millions of people - but surprisingly, 60 percent of these owners and franchisees don't have a succession or exit plan. Our panel experts will examine the many issues and risks facing these Baby Boomer owners.
Second, interviewer Brad Noel explores the challenges faced by a pair of Canadian natives who made their mark buying, building and selling middle market manufacturing companies. The pair purchased a struggling Louisville company and faced a number of troubling scenarios along the way to a turnaround and exit.

Afterward, join fellow BLUEMAP attendees at The Thoroughbred Club for an elegant seated buffet lunch and Keeneland Fall Meet Racing. You can partake in parimutual betting and cheer on the winning horses via flat-screen simulcast at the Club -- or take a direct shuttle to Keeneland for live action. There are plenty of cash bars inside and around the facilities and conversations to keep you busy.
