Recently I read an interesting article from Merrill Datasite about Executing Effective M&A. The article was a good reminder about the importance of the M&A process and how preparation in delivering successful M&A is vital. Good tools including an active target selection process, virtual data room, right timing; they are all important ingredients of a palatable and easily digestible acquisition. However, no matter how good the tools are, they won’t work effectively if there is no framework for using them – in short, a strategy.
