Vietnam is home to many mergers and acquisitions. Here a couple of interesting points about M&A: - M&A investors expect incremental incomes. - Most M&A premiums are more than 20% of the book value of assets acquired. - M&A force Management to grow assets and income to achieve pro-forma projections. - Some public companies have been challenged to grow their assets and net income while maintaining a high return on invested capital after the deals close. - And finally, always keep in mind that over 50% of M&A transactions fails: the addition of the target’s operations is dilutive to overall shareholder value.
