Acquisitions are complex. But get them right and the value it can generate for shareholders can be substantial. We often talk about larger corporates when discussing acquisitions; however, small and medium enterprises (SMEs) can draw just as much value as the bigger firms.
For a CEO or Owner of an SME business, the decision to invest in buying another firm can often be life-changing, with the potential to alter the course of the firm and the opportunities for employees, for better or worse.
Company leaders should look for reasons and reasoned understanding of why they should acquire. Alternatives to acquisitions should be strongly considered and evaluated. Sources of financing the deal are critical – getting the numbers wrong can put a healthy company into critical care.
Finally, every acquisition needs immaculate planning, preparation and strong execution. In fact, the job of acquisition does not complete once the deal is closed. Post-acquisition integration is perhaps the single most overlooked point of failure.
This webinar will explore the potential SME businesses have in growing through acquisitions, discussing:
The link between growth and acquisitions
How should SMEs weigh the risks versus rewards of acquisitions
What should SMEs do in preparation for an acquisition
How should an acquisition be executed
What are the options for financing a deal
