The talk covered how to pro-actively identify suitable acquisition targets, how to contact their owners and convince them to sell, and how to execute all key steps of the resulting acquisition (e.g., indicative offer, due diligence, valuation, final negotiations). It focused on communicating the best practices that acquirers should put in place in order to complete value-adding acquisitions and avoid the numerous pitfalls that could lead to failed acquisitions, and covered the following key countries: mainland China, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam and the Philippines.
