Business Acquisitions & Disposals

Business Acquisitions

To ensure a purchase you should:

  • Identify target markets which add value to your existing operations
  • Maintain focus on your objectives both pre and post acquisition
  • Secure key management and employee support of your long term objectives
  • Identify differences in culture of the target business and plan integration with existing operations

Developing an effective strategy for your business is vital, especially when operating in increasingly competitive and ever-changing markets.  This will include ways in which you can secure strong, sustainable profits. You could achieve this by acquiring or merging your business obtaining economies of scale, synergies or expansion into previously untapped markets.

Identifying your strategy early and involving an experienced advisor will enhance your chances of success.

  • Identify target competitors in which you currently operate together with those competitors who may wish to expand with your technology or geographic area
