Merger and Acquisitions (M&A)
Mergers and Acquisitions: One plus one equals three
There can be a variety of different incentives for completing a M&A transactions but the main reason for acquiring or merging with another company is to create value for the shareholders that exceeds that of the sum of the two companies. The key idea behind the M&A concept is that two companies are worth more combined than they are as separate entities and thus you can say that in regards to M&As one plus one equals three. Examples of possible outcomes and thus incentives to complete a M&A process include:
Raising new capital for an expansion or new investments
Leveraging synergies between your companies and competitors
Entering a new market and leverage on another company’s knowledge, portfolio, and market insights
Gaining quick access to new technologies, intellectual properties, assets, etc.
Strengthening your company’s market position or efficiency
Disposing of underperforming assets or parts of the business
