If you’re looking to increase marketshare, an acquisition will add to your bottom line – eventually. Mismanaged mergers can delay gains by up to 24 months. There’s no reason to squander resources and potentially give competitors an edge while you manage your new monolith. Move quickly and take charge.
Make immediate plans to use your increased bargaining power as a larger player and practice economies of scale as the m & a process moves forward. Even in a down economy, your merger will allow you to post sales growth by increasing market share.
