Introduction

What is an M&A Disaster?

The different reasons that you or your buyer might pull out, so your business doesn’t sell. Why you might end up selling it for less than it’s worth, less than it could have been worth or less than you wanted. How you could discover later on post-sale that you’ve sold to the wrong buyer.

How to Avoid an M&A Disaster

What you can do at different stages of the sale process to reduce the chances of a disaster – before sale, during pre-sale preparation, while going to market, in the due diligence phase and post-sale.
