What a Seller Needs to Know During an M&A Transition

At New Direction Partners, we often advise selling owners of printing businesses to be prepared to stay on in one role or another after the transaction closes. Because keeping a hand in the business at the new owner’s request is a given in so many deals, it’s helpful to have some idea of what the responsibility is going to entail and what psychological adjustments are going to be needed along the way.

M&A: Fair to Middling to Marvelous

Recently, New Direction Partners spoke with a group of investors about structuring a multi-company transaction. It’s a conversation we wouldn't have expected to be having on behalf of printing firms just a few years ago.

The Urge to Merge Is Still Strong

If you own a printing business, you should be in either a selling or a buying frame of mind - even if you have no present intention of doing either. These days, understanding M&A basics is smart thinking for every owner.
