Should a Comprehensive M&A Strategy be part Of Your Growth Strategy

Many studies have aimed to contrast the value of a pure organic business growth strategy versus the more recent trend of growth through mergers/acquisitions. What has been revealed demonstrates that M&A is only becoming a more attractive route; currently alliances account for 15 – 26% of median company value. Additionally, they represent over 41% market value for up to 25% of companies. As markets consolidate, competition for market share and thus profit margins become tighter and there become fewer opportunities for high rates of return with organic business growth. 72% of M&A transactions are geared towards enabling market expansion or diversification strategies. The M&A route is a much lower risk and far speedier solution compared with building an equivalent significant position in a new region or market through internal growth mechanisms.
