Leveraging EMS Benefits for Acquisition

An educated buyer with a well-planned acquisition strategy will be more successful than a buyer who takes a scatter shot approach. The Buyer’s Guide will help you leverage the tools and benefits of your EMS membership to organize your own strategy. 

In the guide, you’ll find tips for:

  • Choosing acquisition targets that are well matched for you and your existing business
  • Identifying sellers in your professional networks
  • Cultivating connections with colleagues to better position yourself for a future acquisition
  • Navigating the acquisition process from introduction to closing
  • Determining appropriate financing and deal terms
  • Using your membership tools to solidify your position and to help pave the way for a smooth and successful acquisition process

In addition, this guide includes an Inquiry Worksheet to help you craft your value proposition and write effective inquiries that highlight your strengths while addressing a seller’s unique criteria and concerns.

Used effectively, your membership can give you a competitive edge compared to other buyers.
