Strategic acquirers and private equity buyers make up a large percentage of the mergers and acquisitions activity in the USA each year. These buyers approach acquisition targets in ways that are both similar and different, and the motivations for making an acquisition are often unique between the two different buyer types. This panel discussion brings together M&A professionals to discuss the differences and similarities between strategic acquirers and private equity buyers, with each panelist’s input coming from their legal, tax, brokerage, and advisory experience.
This panel discussion will cover four main topics in M&A, and will dive into similarities and differences between strategic acquirers and private equity buyers as it relates to:
- Motivations and reasons behind why each type of buyer would want to make an acquisition
- Valuation and deal structuring
- Due diligence process and focus items between LOI and closing, as well as hot points for both in the purchase agreement negotiations
- Integration and transition in the first 6 months / 1 year following the closing, as well as differences in the long-term plan for the acquired company
