Description

This is the fifth session in the Service Bureau industry pioneer meeting. Key stakeholders from some of the early vendors in the industry discuss their approaches to mergers and acquisitions—the processes, what worked, what didn’t. They also talk about the key elements they considered when evaluating potential acquisitions and the factors that affected an acquisition’s success or failure. The discussion concludes with a review of how, when, and why the founders ceased to participate in each company, whether it was sold, acquired, or closed. If a company was acquired or sold, the founders outline the terms of that transition.
