Without proper planning, your deal can fail.
Identifying a target company and negotiating a deal can take months or even years. Performing due diligence on the target company and structuring the transaction is equally challenging. When you finally get to the closing, it’s a day of celebration. But much more work lies ahead.
For a merger or acquisition to be successful, it’s critical to properly evaluate the target, value the transaction, conduct proper due diligence, implement change management, integrate your back office, and identify overlaps or gaps in your accounting processes and IT systems.
