Identify Potential Acquisitions

The result of defining an exit strategy, identifying potential acquirers, and aligning product strategy, is a list of requirements which, once filled through partnering or acquisition, will enhance the Company's value. Often these requirements represent the output of gap analyses comparing current offerings and a longer term product strategy.

The value analysis performed when developing the exit strategy for the Company usually yields a number of value-enhancing initiatives. Completing these initiatives can often be advanced via product or technology obtained through partnerships and/or acquisitions.
