Business Plans: SOP for M&As
Then your plan will be a reliable enabler of whatever type of M&A transaction you have in mind. I’m currently advising a seller who has carried out his planning to a T, and that’s a good thing—his buyers are private equity investors who analyze numbers to death. But, the negotiations are going well precisely because my client has given them plenty of projectable numbers to work with. In those numbers, the buyers are seeing the growth prospects they want to see in support of the investment opportunity they believe this company represents.
That’s how it can be for your company when it’s your time to enter the M&A marketplace. You planned it, and now you’re doing it—and you know that the story has a happy and satisfying ending.
