Getting acquired is a best-case scenario where both you and your investors can make a lucrative payday. Your company’s valuation will be based on several key factors:

  • If your company’s products or services and geography can help fill in a market or product gap for the acquiring business
  • If the acquirer wants to outbid a competitor for your business
  • If your company’s talent meets the needs of the acquirer
  • If there are theoretical synergies between your businesses
  • If you’re doing better than the acquiring business in the same marketplace
