Asking the right questions
Creating shareholder value through acquisitions is a necessity, and often challenging part of many company’s growth strategies. For executive management, identifying the right acquisition is critical. However, if the proposal destroys value, executive management is placed in a very vulnerable position.
Successful acquisitions have always been difficult to pull off ; seventy-two percent of acquisitions create no shareholder value, and they are even more difficult with current market trends. A successful acquisition depends on not only mastering proper target identification, but thorough and complete assessment of assets and benefits to be derived.
