In order to help businesses grow by acquisition, I have joined forces with colleagues in human resources and finance, to form a business called The M&A Team.
We seek to work with business owner/managers, probably in the range of £5-20M turnover, who have identified business acquisition as the most effective strategy to achieve their business (and possibly life) objectives.
By working with The M&A Team, you will minimise the risks of such a strategy by applying our unique 3D methodology to the entire process: financial fit, operational fit and cultural fit. We deliver this through utilizing our specific individual disciplines of Finance, Strategic Marketing and Human Resources.
Our three-stage approach helps identify, qualify and orchestrate the most effective deals for the long-term sustainable growth of each client – generally the acquirer rather than the acquiree.
At present few acquisitions actually pay back, because decisions are too often made for short-term tactical reasons rather than long-term strategic ones, and due diligence is generally based on one-dimensional financial criteria. At best, the sum total of many acquisitions’ achievement is 1+1= 1½.
By seeking deals that are complementary to the existing business, rather than competitive, we aim to improve that equation to 1+1= 3 or 4.
And by basing our costs on a fee-based structure, instead of a one-off success fee at the conclusion of negotiations, the imperative to see through a deal, regardless of its long-term suitability or viability, is removed from the process.
