CEO Connection Merger & Acquisition Readiness Assessment

powered by

As a CEO Connection Member, you receive an assessment of your readiness to buy, sell or merge.

Why Do So Many M&A Deals Fall Short of Their Potential?

The crucial (and often missing) first step in an M&A deal is conducting objective, focused pre-assessments of your organization readiness to embark on a deal. This CEO Connection program helps you match your M&A motivations to those factors most closely linked to potential success and greater realized initial and sustained value from the deal.

The CEO Connection M&A Readiness Pre-Assessment Program powered by Segal provides you with:
  • An indepth evaluation of where your company stands on the M&A readiness spectrum
  • Immediate suggestions for fine tuning your readiness
  • A follow-up report that outlines a framework for improving your M&A playbook

Whether a merger or acquisition is part of your long-term strategy, an opportunistic decision or a response to current volatile market pressures, you owe it to your shareholders and stakeholders to unlock the full value in your next M&A deal – whether you are on the buy side, on the sell side or a private equity investor.
