What you should consider

If you are contemplating pursuing an acquisition strategy, you will be facing critical questions that are essential to successfully completing acquisitions without overpaying.

  • How should you best approach the target(s)?
  • How do you best finance the acquisition(s)?
  • Who are the decision-makers of your counterparts, what are their agendas and how do we best address these?
  • Who are your likely competitors for the target and how do we outsmart them?
  • What is the actual value to you of the acquisition, including synergies?
  • Tactically, what is the optimal price to offer?
  • Should the offer be fixed or should it include an earn-out?
  • How can due diligence best be coordinated and reported back?
  • How will different stakeholders react and how can the transaction best be communicated externally?
  • How should you best structure and manage your internal processing and communication?
