Tips on preparing your company for a merger or acquisition

The world of commerce is ever-evolving. In fact, many New York business owners may face the prospect of mergers and acquisitions, which can have a lasting impact on the ultimate success of a company. Preparation is key in this respect, as the proper amount of planning can ensure a smooth and positive transition for all involved.

What you must know when acquiring a company

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. 

The complex world of business auctions

For owners of a lagging business in New York, selling off certain aspects of a commercial enterprise can be imperative to ensure that success remains in sight for any remaining facets. However, this sales process can be exceedingly complex, especially when numerous parties are involved in making a bid.

What if I say no to a hostile acquisition?

Submitting to a hostile acquisition can be tempting due to high offers and lagging profits. However, some business owners in New York may be reluctant to agree to such acquisitions due to the ultimate loss of control over an enterprise. If you are facing a similar decision, you may be curious as to the consequences of denying or defending against a hostile takeover bid.

How to acquire a small business

Growth is hugely important to Manhattan entrepreneurs seeking to make their mark on the business scene. Acquiring an existing business is a great way to foster such expansion, but should be approached cautiously to ensure that the purchase makes sense from both the financial and growth perspectives.

Common factors in failed mergers & acquisitions

Under ideal circumstances, mergers & acquisitions have a lot to offer all involved, from introducing innovative new technologies to established businesses to providing New York entrepreneurs access to rewarding partnerships. However, a vast number of M&As ultimately fail, and the following issues typically factor no matter the good intentions of either company.

Strategies for small business acquisition

There are many benefits associated with small business acquisition, particularly for those New York entrepreneurs with an eye on innovation. However, having the right strategies in place is essential to ensure the greatest possible return on investment. Unlike acquiring large corporations, small business acquisition requires a more personalized approach.

How do you take care of your customers after a merger?

For customers, almost nothing is more frustrating or infuriating than not getting the service they need. If New York companies fail to provide adequate customer service, or if customers are able to find a better deal with a competitor, they are likely to leave. One particularly vulnerable time this can happen is during the merger or acquisition processes. While your company is going through significant changes, it can be easy to overlook the needs of the customer. In recent posts, we’ve discussed the importance of assisting employees through a merger or acquisition. How can you show the same consideration to your customers during this period?

Ignoring employee concerns during a merger can affect morale

Acquiring and merging companies is a normal part of business for many New York firms. However, a sudden change in business ownership, management and company climate can be stressful for employees. It is important for business executives to consider the needs and emotions of staff during the challenging period of adjusting to a new merger.
