Mergers & Acquisitions
Acquisitions often provide a business with an opportunity to accelerate growth, vertically integrate its business activities or diversify into similar and/or counter cyclical businesses.
Acquisitions are often the most challenging project that a business can take on. Many fail to meet expectations because of a poor strategic fit, an absence of an integration plan, a failure to fully understand the business being acquired, over gearing the enlarged business and/or overpaying for perceived benefits that do not materialise.
