An acquisition is a method of strategic growth.

As such, its reasonable to factor organic growth – the ‘steady as she goes’ approach into the discussion, and assess best-case scenarios for growth.

  • Would increasing your average selling price help?

The answer of course is that each will help…but the cost of achieving this growth has to be weighed against the opportunity cost.

If you’re looking for significant gains, a strategic acquisition is likely the conversation we should be having.
