Business Acquisitions – growing your business
Buying a business is one of the ways of growing your business. This option should be considered at some stage in the life of your business.
Assynt Corporate Finance can support you in each of these steps.
- Carrying out a search of potential targets
- Arrange for approaches to be made
- Draw up and help in negotiating the main terms
- Consider the most appropriate structure of the new business
- Assist in the raising of finance
- Be available throughout the process
If there is no suitable business to acquire, then alternative ways of growing can be considered and you will have a clearer rational of the chosen route for your business.
Acquisitions do not always go according to plan and too many business fail to deliver value.
On the page on my web site “Practice makes Perfect” I refer to a report prepared by the management consultant McKinsey on the effectiveness of acquisitions and also refer to the Book “Why Deals Fail and How to Rescue Them”.
