    Posted by Kari Brooke on Mar 26, 2020 2:58:13 PM

    Last night, the Senate passed an updated version of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act. The bill builds upon earlier versions of the CARES Act and includes an employee retention credit for employers that close or partially close due to the coronavirus pandemic. Eligible employers are allowed a credit against employment taxes equal to 50% of qualified wages (up to $10,000 in wages) for each employee.

    The Importance of Post-Acquisition Integration

    Posted by Doug Meyer on Mar 4, 2020 10:29:12 AM

    The adrenaline rush you get when closing on an acquisition (or merger) is exhilarating.

    Excitement builds as you make the formal announcement to the team and send the press release. The congratulations start pouring in and all the endorphins rush in. If only this were the punctuation at the end of the sentence. It’s more like a new chapter that is yet to be written.

    Enjoy your post close rush, but know that success is in what follows, not the successful completion of the acquisition.

    Often, business leaders are not prepared for this next phase in the transaction, which happens to be the most difficult.  Integration, or as we prefer to say, unification, is the next and most important phase. Closing the deal is now a success that lives in the past and future success is properly unifying the teams and driving the intended benefits.

    Posted by Steve Black on Dec 12, 2019 9:15:24 AM

    Starting and running a business is an exciting venture. Entrepreneurs start with a dream. This dream envisions an amazing future state. Daily, a mission is lived out with certain behaviors and values expressed. Strategy development bridges the gap between where the business is and where it wants to go. This is exciting stuff! Along the way, though, distractions surface. Lawsuits, miscommunications, under-performing team-members, et cetera get in the way of that exciting dream. How did it end up like this?
