“Synergies” is a term often used by M&A business brokers and advisors who are looking to assist with the acquiring of a business. In the world of M&A advisory, synergies refer to the additional value unlocked from the merger two companies. There are two types of synergies: Revenue synergies which result in additional revenue as a combined entity and cost synergies which result from effective integration that leads to lower cost structures.
A merger generally refers to a marriage between two equally sized companies resulting in a new entity. An acquisition is a process in which a larger company absorbs a smaller company and integrates its operations into the existing model.
M&A is a long and complex process which requires specialized expertise and industry connections. An M&A Advisor or a Business Broker can not only add value to the process by providing industry specific know how and guidance throughout the M&A process, but can also leverage their relationships and contacts to solicit the right bidders for your business. In addition, brokers and advisors can connect you with the right accountants, lawyers and lenders to help maximize the likelihood of a successful transaction and reduce management’s involvement so that it can focus on the business and maintain performance.
There are various key objectives of acquisitions and mergers. The main objective of M&A is to increase value and revenue by combining two businesses. Additional goals and resulting benefits can be:
- Capitalizing on the strength of one business to migrate the weaknesses of another
- To become a better competitor within an industry by joining forces and reducing threats of other competitors
- Access to more consumers or a new demographic
- Access to new technologies, services, or capabilities
- Increase overall abilities and productivity
- Accelerating growth
