Using Mergers, Acquisitions, And Affiliations To Address ‘Urgent’ Cashflow Needs
In a challenging market, economic scale matters. Access to resources—working capital, technology, and talent—is essential both during a financial crisis and to retool an organization for new market realities. While a merger, acquisition or affiliation requires planning and careful execution, an economic crisis may motivate organizations to consider this strategy to ensure survival and meet urgent cashflow needs. Key considerations include understanding the strategic needs that can be met, identifying an ideal partner, taking practical steps to move forward, and implementing best practices to guarantee success. Mergers, acquisitions, affiliations, or other models such as Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) have different purposes and outcomes. Not all business combinations are the same, so knowing what model is the best fit is critical. In this webinar, OPEN MINDS Senior Associate Ken Carr explains how to assess what new business combination can help your service organization move through the current crisis and reposition for the needs and challenges of a changing market.
