Are You Looking for A Professional Mergers & Acquisitions Skills Training Course?

Many organisations task senior executives with speeding up the growth of their business by acquiring companies that fit their strategic objectives, but directors and managers with limited M&A experience can find it difficult to identify the right targets, and all too easy to make expensive mistakes.

The Merger Training Institute’s Core M&A Skills Training course is designed to introduce directors and managers to the knowledge and skills they will need to effectively execute acquisition and mergers that add to shareholder value.



Why Is M&A training essential?

In most companies detailed involvement in the M&A process is restricted to a relatively small pool of senior managers and professionals.  Many managers will have touched on parts of the M&A process, perhaps involvement in a due diligence team or a post-merger integration, but mergers and acquisitions training to understand the whole process is essential if M&A is to become an important part of your job responsibilities.

In some large corporations mergers and acquisitions activity is a separate fully resourced central business process, but in many other companies M&A activity is driven by commercial and financial managers in operating divisions and subsidiaries.  Managers thrown into M&A activity without mergers and acquisition training will find themselves in an initially confusing world of specialist terminology and unfamiliar new challenges:

  • How do we generate deals with the kind of companies we want to buy, rather than relying on targets brought to us by investments banks and brokers?
  • What is strategic value? Can it be calculated or is it a commercial judgement?
  • How do deal makers decide on the multiples appropriate to a transaction? Multiples of what?
  • What is the difference between an asset sale and a share sale? What differences does it make?
  • How do we make sure pre-deal targets are realistic AND delivered post-acquisition?

It is possible to learn M&A terminology and best practice on the job, but it is a steep learning curve, and mistakes are costly.  The Merger Training Institute’s suite of independently certified mergers and acquisitions training courses are designed to help managers short circuit the learning process and generate deals that add to shareholder value.
