I would like to get your opinions on what to consider if a competitor approaches us to acquire our company? My structure in mind is as follows:
1) Future value
*determine a range of possible valuations (DCF, transaction and trading multiples)
*good deal for shareholders?
*back office functions
2) Integration issues
*what happens to mgmt team?
*employee job security?
I am not sure with the synergy part because we are not acquiring them, they are acquiring us. If that was us acquiring them, of course, synergies are one of the most crucial things to look at. However, I am selling my company, should I care about synergies or integration issues that will be created after the acquisition?
What else can we add to the structure?
Thank you very much.
