Company Targets

by msecadm4921

If you are looking for an acquisition this autumn then you can take your pick from companies named in the latest acquisition pack from industry analysts Plimsoll Publishing.

The companies have been tracked over the last four financial years and have proceeded to under perform and deteriorate against the rest of the industry, say Plimsoll. There is potential to deliver returns to their current owners or potential acquirers. The most obviously problem for many is that they are hindered with rising debts that are eating into their profit margin.

What they say
<br><br>
David Pattison, Senior Analyst at Plimsoll says: "These are all ‘classic’ acquisition targets. They
are currently undervalued but have great potential. Each of these companies could be turned around and have a great future. The existing owners might just be too constrained to do it. The subject of acquisition seems to be back on the agenda for board meetings within the industry. Driving this theme are low interest rates and companies with cash to spend."
<br><br>
Identified in the new study are 254 security companies the analysis claims are looking "fat". These companies have a cash pile beyond their normal business needs. These companies must put this cash to good use, says Plimsoll. They add: consider the implications of one of these 207 companies falling into the hands of one of your competitors. Competition is intense and extra market share is hard to find. The only way companies are finding they can develop their market share is through acquisition. Current owners at these 207 companies will be encouraged to sell at least a part of their company. It will allow them to shake free from current problems. Selling will offer advantages beyond the current owners expectations. Simply taking over or acquiring a share in any one of these companies
would benefit any potential acquirer. The simple fact is you could make more money, create a more valuable business.
