Product description

Mergers and Acquisitions can seem daunting to entrepreneurs, but it doesn't have to be. Growth through M&A is a simple process that can yield huge rewards if the numbers work, if the company is a good match, and if you are willing to accept some risk. Perhaps the most important aspects of M&A are having the desire, strategy, and structure to make it happen - if you have that then you can take your company to new heights with explosive growth and a minimum amount of money down. This book serves as a guide to effectively find good deals for entrepreneurial businesses in the 1 to 30 million dollar range. It provides a blueprint for how to tackle issues such as determining whether it's a good fit, due diligence, structuring the deal, valuation, tax issues, and how to land the perfect catch. For M&A to succeed, these matters must be addressed first. John will show you ways to find potential spots for rapid growth and accomplish, on a smaller level, what the bigger companies do. By breaking M&A down into approachable elements, you will find that your entire outlook on the topic will be transformed.
