Merger and Acquisition
Mergers & Acquisitions
The common intention for Mergers & Acquisitions is to create a stronger position where two companies together are worth more than two companies separately. Technology integration, higher revenue, regional expansion, higher growth, diversification, tax benefits etc are the main reasons for the mergers. The process of Mergers & acquisitions takes months from start to finish involving different steps and procedures.
Benefits of Mergers & Acquisitions
- Often less expensive to buy than to build-If your business is underperforming and not meeting the expected growth it may be less expensive to buy an existing business rather than expanding it internally
- Reduction in costs and overheads by sharing expenses, miscellaneous budgets, purchasing costs, etc.
When you merge or combine your business activities the overall performance efficiency tends to increase and onboard expenses tend to decline
Mergers can actually provide the acquiring company with an opportunity or a prospect to grow their market share without any substantial effort. Instead, the acquirers merely make a purchase of a competitor’s business for a certain price, which is usually referred to as a horizontal merger.
When one is thinking of acquiring their suppliers or distributors, the acquirer and can get rid of many costs that would take place. In particular, if an acquirer is buying one of its suppliers it is known as a vertical merger where an acquirer saves on the marginal costs that the supplier used to previously charge.
