Acquisition Research

When your company is considering making an acquisition, it is essential that you are armed with as much knowledge as possible. Usually, acquisition targets are new to the potential purchaser, making the level of uncertainty even greater.

Acquisition studies form an integral part of the due diligence process. Some of the key questions acquisition research typically answers are:

  • What do suppliers, distributors and other market players think about, and know about, the acquisition target?
  • How big is the market in which the acquisition target operates, and how will this market develop?
  • What are the acquisition target’s routes to market?
  • What are the risks that need to be considered?
