Target Identification

If only companies were as easy to buy as basic commodities. Then it would be clear where to look for potential candidates. The attributes that distinguish one operation from another would be readily apparent. And you wouldn’t need to convince the target company’s owners and management team that a transaction with you is worth their consideration.

But that’s not how it works with M&A. So it pays to be efficient right from the start. A methodical approach to target identification, based on corporate strategy principles, can put you on the path to a successful expansion of your business portfolio.
