LC | Mergers & Acquisitions


Owners of SMEs need support in the processes associated with mergers and acquisitions of their company. In a relatively short time important and far-reaching decisions have to be taken that require knowledge from various fields, such as finance, strategy, operations, business administration, and legal affairs. There is a lack of rather small but complete integrative tools that bring together elementary models from the various fields and support the actual decision making process of these entrepreneurs. This project will focus on developing such tools based on the analysis of some recent mergers and acquisitions of SMEs. It encompasses interviews with consultants, bankers and entrepreneurs involved. Learning is partly done by developing a negotiating game which will be played and evaluated.
