Why and when you need a M&A Analyst Consultant
Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A) is a key function that cuts across sectors and is important for companies to help maximize value and grow. This goes beyond just financial skills. It requires strategic, operational, macroeconomic, industry, legal, tax and human resource considerations. It encompasses all aspects of a business to understand the concept of its value and how it is perceived to potential buyers.
M&A Analysts help contribute to a wider team effort to enable the business to focus on the day-to-day activities, while considering options for inorganic or acquisitive growth. Companies may have an internal M&A team and during evaluations and negotiations for potential acquisition targets they may be under-resourced and require short-term capacity to ensure a potential transaction meets key timelines and does not disrupt the strategic and operational performance of the business. At other times, smaller businesses may not have the required skill set or dedicated resources to M&A activity, and an external consultant can take up a larger role during the M&A process to free up the business to remain focused on its daily operations.
The failure rate for M&A transactions is often estimated at between 70%-90%, which highlights the value of investing in resources in the evaluation and execution process
