The Mergers & Acquisitions Module is a two day program, designed for CEOs and executives of companies who have attended the AUCBG Assessment Clinic or Growth Modules. The two day program will enable them to learn more about what to look for and how to find a potential acquisition, the preparation required, and the due diligence process – from both perspectives.
About Mergers & Acquisitions
The Mergers & Acquisitions Module begins with an overview of what different companies look for in an acquisition, the preparation required, and the due diligence process – from both perspectives. We’ll discuss the negotiation process, red flags, and pitfalls to avoid – from both the buyer and the seller’s perspective. We’ll share some “do’s” and “don’ts” as well.
Since corporations sometimes make investments in companies in order to have a first-hand look at a potential future acquisition, we’ve called these “semi-acquisitions”. We’ll also discuss how to respond to a company that approaches you about being acquired, including private equity – and who to approach if you want to be acquired.
Finally, we’ll discuss what happens after the papers are signed and the deal is done. It takes more than luck to have a successful merger. Mergers need to be planned and executed well in order to achieve value, so we’ll provide a checklist of issues that need to be addressed in your post-merger implementation plan.
What to expect
WHO SHOULD COME?
This program is open to CEOs and Executives of Companies who have attended the AUCBG Assessment Clinic or Growth Modules, specifically;
- CEOs and Executive Teams of companies that are planning to grow through acquisitions;
- CEOs and Executive Teams of companies that have been (or expect to be) approached about selling some or all of their company to a corporation or private equity.
TWO DAYS OF LEARNING
The program includes presentations from experts who have participated in nearly one hundred mergers and acquisitions, and discussion of a case study of two companies as they go through the M&A process. Selected AUCBG alumni who have acquired companies – or been acquired themselves – will share their stories. There will be presentations and discussions, with opportunities to apply all you are learning to your own company so that you can leave the program with your own “Game Plan for M&A”.
