Consolidated Appropriations Act – Webinar

President Trump has signed the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021, containing one of the largest relief packages in history at more than $900 billion. This relief package provides direct payments of up to $600 to individuals, restores the Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation at $300 per week, provides additional funding for the Small Business Administration’s Paycheck Protection Program while allowing for certain borrowers to draw a second round of PPP funding, and includes grants for shuttered live venue operators. This bill also ensures tax deductibility for expenses paid with forgiven PPP loan money.

Join us as we share an overview of key points of the new act as they relate to business.

Distilling Your Sale or Succession Strategy

Dive down the Rabbit Hole with us for an evening of networking, drinks and food centered around lessons learned from two companies that have successfully embraced the principle of building a company for sale or succession.

Panel Featuring:

Success in Family Succession: Alice Houston is known for her leadership in both the community and of HJI Supply Chain Solutions, a company specializing in order fulfillment, supply chain management and value-added contract warehousing. In 2017, Alice Houston stepped down as president and turned the reins over to son-in-law, Condrad Daniels, who has an industrial engineering degree from Georgia Institute of Technology. Any change in leadership comes with a certain degree of angst. As Alice said, “In a family situation, that angst is a thousand-fold. It has the potential to be devastating.” Learn the steps the Houston family took to avoid that potential outcome.
Wind in the Sails with Private Equity: John Waggoner is a veteran in the maritime industry and the founder/CEO of HMS Global Maritime and American Queen Steamboat Company. In 2018, the companies attracted a private equity partner which has allowed them to accelerate their growth trajectory in a significant way. Since the transaction, the combined company has invested over $100 million towards its future growth objectives, all while remaining headquartered in the Louisville area. John will share what he’s learned throughout his journey, pre- and post- transaction.
