GREENWOOD ACQUIRES VALENCE TO PROVIDE PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT AND JOB RECRUITING FOR THE BLACK COMMUNITY. Learn more.
Mergers and acquisitions are a huge deal, so in part 2 of this series, I want to share the pros and cons that can help during your decision making process.
Some of the pros
Mergers can subsequently lower the cost of your business and increase your revenue resulting in a ‘synergy’
Eliminate the duplication of operations and resources like machines and technology to ensure cost-effectiveness.
Can save you time in your growth strategy if the other company already has what you need such as their client base, technology,
Some of the cons
Acquiring a business can cost a pretty penny and make sure you leave a line item for legal costs
Leave space and time to merge business cultures to avoid mergers
You don’t want to lose your Brand strength so make so the merger is solid or you’re being acquired by a reputable company because as we know, not all money is good money.
M&As are not right for everyone, so gather as much info as you can before setting anything in stone.
