Most business people believe they are good negotiators. But over his years of participating in M&A negotiations on behalf of Sun Microsystems and Hewlett-Packard, Brian Moriarty has observed that oftentimes highly intelligent business people don't always employ negotiation best practices. In many cases, they could have significantly improved their position by implementing effective negotiation techniques.
Distrust of big business around the world is on the rise, and perhaps for good reason. This skepticism was evident among voters in the U.S. during the 2016 election year and was a topic that presidential candidates capitalized on. In a campaign speech for Hillary Clinton, Elizabeth Warren compared some of the biggest tech companies to the banks that caused the financial collapse.
All companies deserve to be “highly profitable and successful,” said Warren. “But the opportunity to compete must remain open for new entrants and smaller competitors that want their chance to change the world again.”
Because most people don’t usually have the expertise, contacts or time to sell their business, it's usually a bad idea for the entrepreneur selling a company to tackle the M&A market without help from an experienced M&A advisor. Retaining experience from an advisor, who deals with due diligence, negotiation and integration challenges day in and day out, helps ensure that business owners don't approach the sales process naively or ill-prepared.
