Growing a business through a buy-and-build strategy

There is a rising trend in companies using buy-and-build strategies to grow. Marktlink frequently assists entrepreneurs who follow this strategy and buy businesses to achieve their ambitions faster. Buy-and-build is based on a future cooperation that will benefit all parties concerned. However, there are some things you need to take into account.

What does buy-and-build mean?

If you decide to acquire one or more companies to expand your own business, you are in fact carrying out a buy-and-build strategy. For you as an acquiring entrepreneur, this is a way to reach out to new customers for example, tap into new sectors or to incorporate specific expertise. Ideally, a buy-and-build process results in a stronger, more versatile and more profitable business. Usually, it complements the existing service and product range as well.

When is buy-and-build an interesting option?

Why would a company want to develop new expertise itself, when it can get there by means of an acquisition? A buy-and-build process will help you accelerate growth and, in many cases, save costs as well. We advise you to consider buy-and-build if your company has a scalable business model, is active in a fragmented sector and has outgrown the start-up stage. We will be happy to use our experience from similar transactions to roll out the most appropriate buy-and-build strategy for you.

How to carry out a successful buy-and-build strategy

A successful buy-and-build process requires a clear vision and strategy, setting out in detail how such a process will lead your company to success, step by step. Our deal team will gladly take your entrepreneurial ambitions to great hights. Together, we will set the course, and you can count on us to proactively explore our own extensive network for suitable targets. Because, obviously, an important external factor is the availability of acquisition targets in the sector in question.
