Acquisition is not only about factories and assets; it is also about knowledge and markets.
Is acquisitions part of your company's growth plan? Though acquisitions and mergers are crucial pathways to growth, from our experience, we realise, there are potential downsides with 2/3rd's of deals not realising their originally stated goals.
However, a due-diligence can reduce the risk of acquisitions
Expandus offers an independent view to determine why your company is considering buying the other company and decide whether the reasons make a good argument to do so, such as an increase in the share of the market or acquisition of a new, popular product or technology etc.
Our Acquisition Study Research typically answers :
- Evaluate what the stakeholders ( Suppliers, Users, Channel Partners etc ) think about your acquisition target
- Is the current market of the acquisition target attractive enough and how is it likely to develop in future?
- What is the existing business model of your acquisition target (operational practices, financials, organizational structure and employee culture)
- What are the risks that need to be considered? ( Liabilities, lawsuits, etc )
Knowing answers to above questions ahead of time will not only give you a clearer picture but also help you assess what will it take for successful integration?
