What you must know when acquiring a company

On Behalf of | Aug 24, 2016 | Mergers & Acquisitions

A valuable opportunity simply can’t be passed up, as the best and brightest business owners in New York City are most certainly aware. Acquisitions are one way to strive towards future growth, and our legal team at Cox Padmore Skolnik & Shakarchy understands that this process requires certain information to achieve the best possible outcome. 

At the heart of many successful acquisitions lies a solid team of workers, as described by Inc.com. Allocating roles must be done in a clear and concise way to ensure each team member contributes effectively to the overall process. Additionally, this group should be composed of a range of experts from many different fields. Attorneys can tackle any legal questions that may arise, while those well-versed in financial matters can address important concerns about money. It also helps to seek the services of an operational guru, as well as someone with a deep understanding of marketing.

When actually searching for an enterprise to acquire, the overall cost will no doubt be a consideration. However, looking for the lowest price may backfire if a business is rife with issues. Be on the lookout for an excessive amount of customer dissatisfaction associated with a business. If existing customers are dismayed by past practices, it can be increasingly difficult to get people on board. Employee displeasure is another strong indicator of a less-than-desirable investment.

Of course, the acquisition process should be preceded by a lot of thorough leg work. A prospective purchase must be accompanied by extensive research on everything from previous tax filings to leases and employee contracts. This information will allow an acquirer to know exactly what is being purchased, thereby enabling an informed decision.
