Managing Partner Conference 2022: M&A from the Buy Side of the Transaction
For many years M&A activity in the public accounting industry was primarily driven by succession planning issues. Surely, succession challenges still play a role in a firm’s decision to sell or merge, but there are many other strategies that are driving the high level of M&A transactions throughout North America.
During this virtual conference, we will discuss the buyer’s side of the transaction. The topics to be discussed include:
The current state of the M&A marketplace in North America
The results of the M&A member survey
Using M&A as a revenue growth strategy, to enhance or develop service or industry expertise, and to obtain partner and staff talent to service current and future clients
Structuring the deal from the buyer’s side – valuations, multiples, partner compensation, equity, etc.
Risks, rewards, and traps in acquiring a firm
Avoiding busted deals as a buyer
Considerations in same size mergers
Developing an M&A strategy and partner buy-in
Sharing M&A experiences from our member firm attendees
Q&A and roundtables
Facilitators: Jeff Anzovino, Chairperson of the MP Committee, and Joe Tarasco, North America Regional Director
