Webinar: Best practice integration – ensuring the marriage is as good as the courtship

Posted by Moore Kingston Smith

The media and marketing services M&A market continues to be very buoyant despite the uncertainties around the global economy, with private equity and trade acquirers continuing to actively pursue potential targets in large numbers.

In this webinar, we’ll explore the steps acquirers take from an integration perspective to ensure that acquisitions will be a success before, during and after a transaction. We’ll also discuss what sellers can do and what they should be finding out from potential acquirers, as well as how we can help to ensure transactions are a success and deliver best value for all.

We’ll be joined by guest speakers Kathryn Herrick, Interim Deputy CFO of Next 15 and general Board Advisor, and Tim Bonnet, President of Unlimited Group, who will offer their insights from what they have seen work well, and also not quite so well, from their wealth of transaction experience.

The team will also provide an update on M&A activity and key trends in the last quarter.

If you have any questions for our panel, you’ll have the chance to raise them in our live Q&A or you can submit them in advance here.
