The volume of unsolicited acquisition calls being made to privately held companies in the United States is staggering. In this issue of Dealmaker we examine strategies for evaluating and responding to these approaches. The issue also covers highlights from the Grant Thornton International Ltd's 2011 International Business Report. The issue ends with an update on first-quarter M&A activity and a summary of recent transactions.
Many business owners are familiar with the traditional, data-driven appraisal methodologies but what happens when you look at value through a different lens? Are there simpler ways to understand, and increase, the value of your business?
