Merger/acquisition can be the most effective way to grow your business when expertly executed. However, you do not have to look too hard in the business media to find M & A activity which has brought the participants close to financial disaster.

Clearly, M & A’s work best when both the acquiring and target businesses share synergies which immediately add value to the combined business. Careful selection of takeover targets is clearly key, but it is also essential that the acquiring firm think dispassionately about their prime objectives and more importantly, be realistic in what they hope to achieve.

At ideology consulting, we are able to offer our clients the following:

• Independently identify and shortlist potential takeover targets, and make direct approaches on behalf of our clients (particularly if the clients wish to remain anonymous in the initial stages).
• Act as an intermediary during negotiations, as well as advising on all aspects of the deal.

So whether your company is looking to enter the market for the first time, or you are a ‘seasoned campaigner’ requiring an independent sounding board, call ideology consulting on 0333 939 8010 for an initial consultation.
