“Buy and Build” Strategy

Accelerate growth with a well-researched “buy and build” strategy

In a fragmented market with many smaller players, consolidation opportunities regularly arise that are realised with a “buy and build” strategy. Potential target companies are identified and, like a string of pearls, several acquisitions are made at short intervals.
In most cases, the entry is made with a “platform company” that already has the structures and processes in place so they are able to integrate newly acquired companies quickly and smoothly.
