New York, NY (PRWEB) September 30, 2010
Gerry Adolph, a Senior Partner at Booz & Company and leader of the firm's Mergers and Restructuring group, shares his insights about what Boards of Directors need to keep in mind as the M&A environment continues to heat up.
In this episode, he addresses topics including:
- The biggest risks for Boards in looking at prospective transactions,
- How directors should assess different types of deals,
- What Boards should consider when a suitor comes knocking, and
- How to deal with hostile transactions.
"In today's M&A environment where we have seen a seller-driven slow-down and a difference in expectations between buyers and sellers, evaluating the strategic fit and true valuation of a potential deal -- as well as having a clear roadmap as to how that transaction will build capabilities -- are key factors for boards to consider," says Adolph.
