Being ready for a merger or acquisition discussion, where the preparation of company information is often performed under high time constraints. Deloitte notices companies aren't always that well prepared and that can have multiple negative effects:

  • Information asymmetry;
  • Gap between ask- and bid price / price perception;
  • Process disruptions;
  • Loss of sale momentum;
  • Less favourable deal terms;
  • Less borrowing capacity and less negotiation space with banks;
  • Less management focus on day-to-day business.
