Introduction

This GLOMACS Mergers and Acquisitions training course will introduce you to the skills that help you make successful transactions even in tough times.

The tough business environment has forced all companies to look at acquisitions as a means to grow their business – they cannot rely on organic growth alone. However, the difficult financial environment will put added pressure on managers in achieving value from their acquisition. Deviations between actual results and the original forecasts will place increased scrutiny on a transaction’s economics. What this means for acquirers is that achieving success in today’s environment is both more important and more challenging.

Management’s challenge therefore is to beat the market odds and execute deals that deliver the value investors demand – this GLOMACS training course will introduce you to the skills that help you make successful transactions even in tough times, including due diligence and business valuation techniques.

This GLOMACS training seminar will highlight:

  • Why are companies acquisitive?
  • When is due diligence required?
  • What are the principles of business valuation?
  • Ultimately, it’s all about the integration
