Organizations have to constantly reassess their strategies to evaluate if they are in a position to achieve their goals like Growth, Diversification, etc. Over the years, it has been established that the fastest way of achieving exponential growth is through Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A). The M&A route is also one of the best medicines to curtail excessive losses and to gain quick operational efficiency. M&A is also the strategy adopted to achieve financial economies and diversification. Nonetheless, these Business Restructuring exercises are also fraught with high risks especially in the areas of business valuations – what is a good price to acquire or divest, is inevitably a question worth several millions of dollars! Managing a merged organization is also a critical aspect which if not handled well could defeat the whole purpose of M&A.
