Strategic acquisitions are powerful tool to drive exponential growth for your firm and its investors. Current day competition for proven A&D targets is fierce, driving valuation multiples in some cases beyond 13 times earnings. The same competition is also giving sellers the ability to demand shorter diligence and faster closings. Whether you are building a complementary portfolio of market leaders, adding to your already successful base, or entering the A&D market to diversify and offset, a bad acquisition can be negatively impactful for many years to follow. In order to be successful in this competitive market, it is critical that your corporate development team have depth and diversity feeding your decision process.
