2011 Acquisition Climate

alligatorThese past two years have cut and squeezed fat out operations and forced even the best run companies to revisit efficiencies, layoffs, and cost reduction.

Internal growth in this environment has been tough.

Finding complementary technologies, greater distribution, new talent, and added sales through non organic growth can be an attractive option for the prepared company.

For those that understand the risks & prepare for the pitfalls of growth through joint venture and acquisition, 2011 will present abundant opportunities as baby boomers exit their businesses and the changing bank climate is forcing many firms to seek partners or buyers.

According to studies at Harvard, Wharton, and KPMG, most acquisitions don’t add value, and over 50% destroy value.

Developing the right talent, tools, and process for acquisition are a necessary first step to removing the risk inherent in the process.

Is your company poised to take advantage of the deal rich climate for acquisition/joint venture 2011 offers?

Feel free to share stories and best practices at this blog or to search past writings (from various experts) to help find success and avoid the pitfalls of acquisition.
