This week, I’ve struggled to find something insightful and pithy to write and share. This is probably a symptom of all the distractions that are going on in the world right now.
So, instead, I’ll share a short story about value creation.
This week I had an interesting conversation with a firm regarding their approach to M&A. Their M&A advisory firm was telling them this was the time to buy; the market is hot right now.
Do you wonder if someone has to tell you something is a hot property if it really is?
They were questioning this themselves; Valuations are still high, there is a great deal of completion to close new acquisition deals in 2022, what is the incentive for the companies being sold to become more than just good enough?
Did you and your firm spend most of 2020 and 2021 working on new buyout deals?
Are you finding that in 2022 value creation is that much more challenging than it used to be?
What value creation initiatives will be a priority for you in 2022?
- How important is increasing EBITDA compared to revenue multiples?
- Where does M&A sit on that plan, and how will you get good value for money?
- What do you see as the most significant value creation differentiator this year?
