Successfully completing a large-scale M&A transaction is a complex process. Unforeseen and unexpected mistakes during the deal can be made on the buyers’ or sellers’ side; both posing an equal risk of capsizing even the best potential deal.
While executing deals remains a challenge for all parties involved due to ongoing market volatility, there are also impediments inherent in the deal making process that can be detrimental to the successful closure of a transaction, or even after the deal is done.
Understanding the mistakes that can derail M&A transactions is essential to ensuring a successful outcome and lasting value. The purpose of this webinar is to educate prospective buyers and sellers on the potential pitfalls in deal making that can result in failed transactions. With the knowledge gathered from the seasoned dealmakers hosting this webinar, both buyers and sellers can learn how to prepare, execute and ensure lasting value for their employees, shareholders and business partners.
Merrill DataSite is bringing together a panel of experts in the field of M&A to share valuable insight on how to orchestrate successful M&A transactions and discuss how the following factors can negatively impact deal making if not managed correctly:
- Improper planning
- Unrealistic project assessments
- Improper allocation of time
- Poor resource utilisation
- Lack of secure business tools
- Limited access to quality business information
- How to uncover “Synergy Savings” to prevent “Deal Fatigue” and Post-Merger business problems
