Companies’ development pathways mostly ally organic and external growth. The road to successful development of a company is paved with a combination of organic and external growth.
Whether they are originated in defensive or offensive strategies, external growth operations can be an opportunity as much as a threat.
Conducting transactions is very demanding, both technically and psychologically.
The experience and support of a trusted advisor is definitely a key success factor.
A significate part of external growth operations fail and don’t match with initial objectives
In most cases, companies perform external growth following opportunities rather than the outcome of a real strategic analysis
External growth is restrictive for the company often focused on its daily operations. Running transactions demand cold blood to permanently step back, analyse all the angles, evaluate options and take the right decision
- Selling transactions are rarely anticipated and often handled in haste and with strong emotions once the decision is taken. The problem being that this attitude is in contradiction with the objective of an optimized valorisation of assets and skills
- Selecting adequate targets and conducting sharp negotiations are essential, but it is the integration process which generates value and synergies. Failing to anticipate and monitor this critical phase increase the probability to turn an opportunity into a threat
