Auctions in the M&A Process

International M&A e-book thumbnailJustin Pettit, published an article titled "Auctions in the M&A Process" in Financier Worldwide’s July e-book on international mergers and acquisitions (M&A).

"Auctions in the M&A Process" focuses on the increasing use of competitive auctions in the M&A process, and the resulting shift in balance of power between financial sponsors and corporates. While auctions are perceived to be more efficient in the sell-side process, neither strategic buyers nor financial sponsors prefer them. The article discusses the pros and cons of auctions, key success factors, and ways to restore the balance between financial sponsors and corporates going forward.
