Every acquisition is different, each transaction involves unique aspects, but some steps are common to all acquisition strategies:

  • The evaluation of the financial solutions available for making an acquisition – knowing exactly how much can be allocated to the project is essential for success;
  • Establishing the criteria and searching for suitable candidates – knowing what you want to buy is also essential. Search for potential candidates based on geographical location, business area, expansion, potential, and level of competitiveness;
  • Contacting potential targets – the next phase should be to establish contact with the companies that seem suitable for your means and objectives;
  • Negotiations – after finding companies interested in going ahead with the transaction, a letter of intent is issued, and a usually lengthy process of negotiating the terms of the deal starts;
  • Due diligence – in this phase, the correctness of the valuation documents is verified, and the assets, liabilities, contracts, and other relevant figures of the company to be acquired are also reviewed;
  • The contract – in the final phase, the contract that includes all the terms and conditions of the agreement is drafted and signed by the parties.
