You are a business development manager reporting to the vice president (VP) of business development at one of the largest life sciences organizations in the Midwest. The owners are ready to sell the organization and have identified a potential buyer.
You have been working with the strategic planning team to ensure that the acquisition process is as smooth as possible and all necessary documentation is in place. You have also been asked to recommend strategies to help lead the organization through the changes that will occur after the acquisition.
Last week, while planning was underway, your VP called a meeting to share that the potential buyer is showing signs of reluctance and the deal may not go through. It has been decided that you will research an alternative buyer and develop a contingency plan. This contingency plan is an important part of your strategy and your final acquisition report to the board of directors.
You and your team did preliminary research into competitors in the life sciences industry to identify alternative buyers. Based on the research, the VP has shortlisted a few alternative buyers. You have now been asked to choose and evaluate the best option from the list and create a report about this organization’s current situation.
You and your team have also been asked to formulate an acquisition road map that lays out the action steps and timelines necessary for the execution of the acquisition process.
Alternative buyer research report: Recommend one potential buyer for the organization in the scenario from the alternative buyer options list provided and justify your choice. Visit the company’s website and research its market and financial situation.
