M&A strategy is vital to the success of many companies operating in today’s economy. Most CEOs realize that their companies cannot succeed on organic growth alone without making acquisitions. Acquiring is much faster than organic growth, and speed is unquestionably essential in today’s economy.
However, it is a known fact that half of M&As fail to deliver on their promise. As prevalent as they are, M&A activities use vast amounts of company resources and absorb considerable management time. Failed M&A deals not only compromise the strategy of the firm but ultimately drive substantial financial losses.
Things don’t have to be this way. External expertise can help management in many ways and act quickly given acquisitions usually require tight time frames. Strategic assessments, target screening, due diligence, synergy sizing, and valuation comprise our areas of expertise that can improve the odds of a successful deal.
