Some M&A deals require service shut-downs [Video]

When a startup provides a service to users or site visitors, a merger or acquisition can disrupt continuity. Sometimes, as technology, talent and vision are integrated into a new company, existing services need to scale back or shut down altogether. 

This depends on the ultimate goal of the merger. If a startup’s services are intended to be relaunched within the buyer’s portfolio, standalone platforms may need to dissolve. Tech companies that want to continue operating more or less as usual after a deal should seek buyers that will give them autonomy. 

With the guidance of an experienced M&A advisor, your company can seek, negotiate and sign a merger or acquisition that meets your growth objectives.
