Are you ready for a merger or acquisition?

M&A ReadyDuring an M&A process you want to make the most of it. Preferably a hole in one. Immediately when the opportunity presents itself. That is only possible when you start the game well prepared. Choosing the right club helps to win the game. It enables you to make the swing that will ensure you get the most out of a merger or acquisition. And beat the competition.

Do you choose the right club?
You aim for a hole-in-one. That requires selecting the right club. The right club ensures you have the swing you need to end the game as a winner.

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.
