Jay Berlinsky, a member of Dykema’s Corporate Finance practice, has authored an article, “Benefits of the Acquisition Process,” that discusses how companies derive lasting benefit from the process of exploring an acquisition, even when that acquisition doesn’t come to fruition.

In the article, Berlinsky draws upon his decades of experience guiding clients through the strategic process of researching and evaluating acquisition targets to observe that the skills and capabilities brought to bear when considering an acquisition add genuine and lasting value to an enterprise and to its leadership. He notes that the talents required to evaluate, negotiate, execute, integrate and operate an acquisition correlate positively to—and help fuel—the hopeful acquirer’s long-term success, regardless whether the deal is finalized.
