Over the last several years, mergers and acquisitions in the industrial distribution sector have soared to more than 200 and counting. Completing a successful M&A transaction is far more complex than many realize, combining two seemingly different, but equally important elements.
This webinar will demonstrate how the following two elements, when handled simultaneously and properly, form a sure recipe for M&A success:
- First, the senior-most executives need to focus almost entirely on development of the strategic plan, drive the in-depth financial analysis, guide thorough due diligence procedures, and ultimately close the deal.
- Second, while all of that is taking place, they also need to pay close attention to the human side of the transaction, i.e., the impact on the rest of the staff, keeping them motivated, committed to advancing operations, and assuring that long-term growth initiatives move forward.
