A/E/C Mergers and Acquisitions


Whether you are on the buying side or the selling side, entering into a merger or acquisition can be a very risky bet. Even a seemingly small oversight or error in judgement can lead to a million-dollar mistake. Here just a few mistakes firm leaders have made that cost their firms dearly because they did not attend this program.

         1. Paid 2x fair market value for an acquisition because the buyer was using a flawed                    valuation formula
         2. Structured an earnout that was so complicated only a judge could figure it out (and,                 unfortunately, she did!)
         3. Lost a key rainmaker because of poorly-timed and sloppy transaction announcements               to staff
         4. Missed a great acquisition because one shareholder thought "all deals are bad                        deals"
         5. Only pursued companies that were actively for sale because "they were the easiest to close"
         6. Had to dump money into the acquisition to fund operations because the buyer missed serious problems in due diligence
         7. Got focused on selling for the highest price that the seller agreed to lousy terms that netted lower after-tax proceeds
