Have you ever survived a merger or acquisition of an employer? Wonder why acquiring or merging with another company seems so attractive? Want to successfully buy or sell a business? Although companies spend more than $2 trillion on mergers and acquisitions (M&A) every year, 70% to 90% of them fail. Selling or merging a business is not like selling a house. There are many obstacles to a successful business sale or merger. Much planning is needed to identify the obstacles faced by business owners, and overcome or minimize the effect of the obstacles. We will identify the trends of the M&A market for 2018 and focus specifically on opportunities for middle market companies. We will discuss why mergers and acquisitions are so attractive to business owners, executives and investors, why middle market M&A matters, and why it is important to ensure your company is prepared to succeed.
