Mergers and Acquisitions Special Services
Acquisition Acceleration Program for MSPs
A 12-month program to buy and integrate an acquisition In The IT Managed Services Market. (Limited to 10 Participants for our January 2018 Kickoff)
It is no secret that acquisitions within the MSP industry are occurring at a record pace and higher multiples are being paid out. This consolidation will accelerate.
Why? Many MSPs have hit a sales plateau that they aren’t able to surmount. Other owners are aging out and looking to move on to the next opportunity. A substantial number have not been able to drive the ROI they need on a consistent and sustainable basis. And the day to day risk to reward realities often become overwhelming in time.
Targeting The Right Acquisitions, Getting It Done, and Reaping The Benefits
Within the Taylor Business Group client base, acquisitions are a proven way to achieve rapid and profitable growth – if done in a professional and disciplined manner.
However, here is what we see in our industry:
- MSP owners lack a formal and intentional process for finding companies to acquire, pursue and integrate into their business
- This lack of an explicit and aggressive acquisition process means that many MSPs miss the opportunities to dramatically grow their business
- This lack of readiness can lead to wasting time, making bad deals or failing to achieve the expected ROI and anticipated synergies
The Structure Of The Acquisition Acceleration Program
This program is unique and leverages the cumulative experience of the Taylor Business Group client base.
The program has been designed by Michael France and Michael Cummings – with the help and support of our clients who have made multiple successful acquisitions in the MSP business.
The program combines four workshops to train you have to find the right acquisition, close the deal and integrate the acquisition. Then, we develop an action plan for each participant and execute the plan on a week to week and month to month basis.
