Has your strategy or plan led you on the path of buying another company? Possibly a competitor or industry player has come on the market and you have the opportunity to acquire them? If so, are you clear on how to approach them, how to finance the deal and how to get it done without distracting your team and missing your numbers?
If done right, acquisitions can lead to incredible strategic leverage, new capabilities, access to new markets …and many other value-adding objectives. The key is pricing them correctly, mitigating the risks and executing a well thought-out integration plan.
Below we highlight some of the lessons learned, how we think about buying and integrating businesses, and links and resources that may help in building your business.

This graph illustrates the high-level steps involved in the acquisition process. In concept there are three major phases which we have simplified into two. The first involves having a well defined corporate strategy which might identify gaps or capabilities that may instigate an acquisition strategy. Second major phase involves the identification and deal process to actually purchase another business. The third phase is integration. Each of these is critical to the success of the overall process.
