Mergers/acquisitions and partnering have long been strategic vehicles to grow or change an existing organization. Corporate America has extensive experience in merging with or acquiring firms. However, its track record of being able to unify an acquired firm, with the acquirer, and provide a single organization with increased growth potential has been somewhat shaky. The near collapse of the credit markets starting in late 2007 had a significant impact on acquisitions. More recently, M&A activity has grown to record levels. However, the types of transactions have changed. Strategic transactions, compared to equity investments, are the primary driver. This session provides a roadmap including specification actions, for financial professionals, focused on improving the results of an acquisition, sale, formation of an alliance and/or outsourced activities. As with the three other Controllership Skills Update programs (Risk Management; Budgeting, Forecasting and Big Data, and Current Survival Skills) this session is also aimed at renewing your existing skills and providing specific actions to improve your organization's results. Updated to include discussions on the potential impact of the new tax regulations, corporate structures to manage M&A, and internal venture capital activities, as well as strategic spin-offs/splits and managing outsourced activities.
