The Numbers Don’t Add Up
Buy Side Advisory
In a survey that iMerge conducted, a large percentage of firms engage with M&A buy side firms, however, buy-side sourced deals ranked the least successful as opposed to internally (33%) or sell-side (43%) generated deals. The M&A buy-side industry has migrated to a “throw spaghetti at the wall” and see what gets bought approach by signing dozens of buy-side agreements. This lack of focus dilutes the effectiveness and focus. iMerge’s buy-side process is precision focused toward success.
