How to Choose the Right Business Acquisition Choosing the right type of business acquisition services depends on three factors: 1) The complexity of the business’ purchasing parameters, 2) The asking price of target businesses (Consultants can convince sellers with unreasonable selling prices to lower their price via defensible valuation and effective negotiation.) 3) The number of services to be rendered by the merger acquisition firm.

Conducting Due Diligence in a Business Acquisition
Due diligence on a business acquisition is typically divided into two stages. A preliminary due diligence is performed prior to making an offer and will include a review of general company information and detailed financial records. In an Offer to Purchase, the buyer should list numerous contingencies that would prevent purchase, allowing an “out” if the target business does not meet one of the contingencies. Upon the seller’s acceptance of the buyer’s initial offer, the buyer will conduct a second phase of due diligence in which they review and audit information pertaining to the target business. We highly recommend that buyers utilize the services of consultants, such as accountants and attorneys; however, buyers should note that attorneys and accountants are primarily concerned with legal and financial liability, so they will most likely be overly cautious in recommending a business acquisition. Ultimately, buyers must independently analyze the attorneys’ and accountants’ recommendations, review business’ data, and determine whether the acquisition meets the buyer’s own goals. Qualified Business Acquisition Consultants can help the client through this complicated process, resulting in exceptional pricing and buying terms.
