What do you need to think about when you decide to make an acquisition?

The marketing communications M&A world has been evolving significantly over the last 12 months. Once dominated by the holding companies, and in particular WPP, the market has seen new buyers emerging, most notably the consultancies. Along with these new buyers have come new priorities and deal structures.

As part of our Advertising & Marketing seminar series, we are delighted to have Jim Houghton of Helion Partners, Peter Harris CFO of Next 15 and Chris Matthews of Sutherlands join us on Thursday 26 April to discuss;

  • Acquisition strategy
  • How to value an agency
  • The transaction process
  • Post deal integration
