Growth Through M&A, Partnerships or New Capital – Evaluating the Path Forward

Perhaps more the any other avenue, the best opportunity to seize upon open market opportunity rests in the significant changes that will occur to corporate governance and finance. In the emerging “New Space” market, this likely will be manifest as increased levels of M&A as well as the formation of new partnerships. What kind of market analysis should predicate the decision to move toward a merger, partnership or joint venture? What factors, such as customer base, geographic expansion, diversification of products and services, or the acquisition of novel technology, make for ideal marriages between companies? Although lacking the allure of mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures and strategic alliances are other alternatives.
