M&A is one of the turning points in the business which might turn out to be a boon or bane for the organization. In order to grow and expand there is a need to understand the intricacies of the company and identify potential target candidates that might help you move one step closure to achieve your business goals.
Apart from growth, businesses opt to merge with or acquire other companies to create synergies, improve overall performance, eliminate competition or dominate the supply chain. Companies with apparently different businesses tend to open up new opportunities from conglomerate deals while companies in the same line of business tend to improve overall performance by either reducing cost or improving revenue using horizontal integration. The amalgamation of businesses also leads to eliminating the competition leading to the smooth growth of the organization in the future. Simply buying a competitor’s business at correct valuation is an easy alternative to gain a larger market share.
M&A often turns out to be quite challenging because it requires consent from both ends to seal the deal. Competitors might not be ready to give away their existence or demand higher business valuation for the same. This is where the need for a financial consultant comes in. They can guide you through the deal-making process and takeover procedure by identifying the target companies, screening the market, conducting due diligence, curating the strategic deal that is relevant and correctly priced, negotiating with the target company and finally preparing M&A contract.
StartupMinds can help you devise a plan of action that is comprehensive and combine the positive elements of both the companies to create a post-merger integration outlook. This will give a better understanding of reality and help in decision making by weighing the risks and benefits of different deals.
M&A deals might not always turn out to be successful and many of them fail due to several reasons. Listing to the wrong target company, overestimating the synergies, overvaluing the target company leading to excess payment or risks due to inadequate due diligence are few important reasons for failure. We at StartupMinds make sure these elements of failure are eliminated to the maximum extent and help the client to seal a successful deal.
