What do acquirers really want?

The inside track on the changing acquirer landscape with Charles Fallon, co-founder of global M&A consultancy SI Partners.

Acquirer priorities are changing, but what do buyers really want? And what will they pay?

The buyer landscape has changed dramatically with atypical acquirers entering the marcoms space from a spectrum of different industries and geographies, importing with them a range of deal models and valuations. 

For many agency owners, selling all or a substantial part of their business presents an opportunity to crystallise and capitalise many years of endeavour, but it can also be an opportunity to develop the agency into new geographic, service or product markets with the right investor or acquirer. 

In this session Charles Fallon, will discuss how businesses need to prepare themselves for sale differently in the new global world of acquirers, top acquirer priorities and how to create modern deal rationale to achieve a premium.
