M&A Process: A Buy-side Perspective

M&A Process: A Buy-side Perspective

Nonye Ukawuba


There are several routes you can take to sell your company. No matter which way you decide to go, the buyer involved in the process will have a slightly different perspective from yours. On this edition of “Deal Talk,” you will learn the difference between M&A firms and investment banks and, specifically, how some buy-side consultants work with their clients to assist in the early stages of the M&A process. Is your company being targeted for an acquisition? What are potential buyers thinking about your business? How will a price be determined for your business? What are some of the potential hurdles you might encounter? For answers, listen to Jeff Allen’s conversation with Nonye Ukawuba, CPA and M&A advisor at Riveron Consulting in Chicago.
