Acquisitions consume an enormous amount of management time and other resources. In order to make a successful acquisition you need to be properly prepared. You need to understand the market, the target business and how you are going to manage the business integration. In Buying a Business, Peter Howson guides learners through each step – from their initial decision to acquire a business, through initial negotiations and due diligence up to and including the final integration.
Buying a Business enables the learner to:
- plan carefully and strategically for their acquisition
- understand what they need to know about the market, the target company, and the deal
- understand the due diligence process, what it’s for and how to conduct it effectively
- create a plan for effective integration of the acquired business
