One constant in today's business world is change. Economies and markets are volatile and can react dramatically to political and economic upheaval. Disruptive technology innovation is forcing changes to traditional business models. A Digital world creates a much larger convergence of technology, processes, data, assets and people. Long-term relationships that take years to develop sometimes become less valuable. Customers of all size have access to services that used to be limited to large institutions.
This environment makes long term planning much more difficult as business must have the flexibility to adapt. Companies must constantly reinvent themselves or risk becoming irrelevant. The value of a business enterprise can change rapidly, often for reasons over which stakeholders have little control.
Public companies have long recognized the risks and opportunities that result from change. They see consolidation presenting windows of opportunity that open and close almost at the same time. Their Boards know that organic growth alone is often not enough.
25% of all proposed acquisitions, mergers and recapitalizations never close, often due to inexperience by the buyer, seller, or both. As a result, business owners appreciate and seek experienced M&A professionals for counsel on a potential sale, acquisition, merger, strategic partnership, recapitalization or debt restructuring. At The Inman Company we believe that middle market private companies and family owned businesses deserve access to the same quality professionals as public companies.
"It doesn't make sense to have access to smart, experienced people and not hire them and follow their advice."
