Are you looking into an acquisition and wondering where to start? When is the best time to meet with a lender? Should you overpay on student loans or set aside cash to build liquidity? In this episode of the Shared Practices Podcast we are chatting with Matt Porter, a dental broker from Arizona, and we take a deep dive into the many facets of a successful practice acquisition. We get into a great discussion on the dollar amount of goodwill and why that number may mean a lot more to the seller. Matt also walks us through the role of a great broker, taxes and asset allocation, and how you can spot a lemon. It was a joy to record with Matt and he really brings a lot of value to the conversation, so enjoy the episode!
