What do you do when your business receives an acquisition offer?
On one hand this is the day you’ve been waiting for, for years. It’s real recognition and validation. It may even be a huge payday. At the same time, it can throw you a real curveball. Especially if you haven’t found time to really learn the M&A process and how to ace an exit.
Even then, there are lots of questions. Is it a good deal? Should you risk the wait while continuing to build your business? What are the next steps if it is a great offer?
