Almost all large corporations use acquisition to expand their sales, the geographic areas they serve, and the products that they offer. Small and Mid-size businesses, however, buy companies far less often although doing so makes as much sense for them as it does for larger companies. "By adding Kindles and other devices that run Kindle software to the list of platforms on which the book can be accessed we hope to make this material available to a wider audience," said David Annis, co-author and Chief Executive officer of Valuations LLC. "Our book offers small and mid-size business owners an easy to follow, step by step guide to acquiring other companies." The guide includes detailed explanations of how to find acquisition targets, evaluate and value potential acquisitions, finance deals, negotiate with business owners, finalize the acquisition, and mistakes to avoid both before and after closing.
The book will also be available to members of Amazon Prime as part of the Kindle Lending Library. This will enable people to read the book for free for a limited period of time.
