EquaTerra Position: Service Provider M&A - Change of Control Doesn't Have to Mean Loss of Control
The outsourcing service provider market has historically experienced a steady stream of Mergers and Acquisitions (M&As) which began to pick up in 2007. An M&A event can be worrisome for a buyer actively engaged with one of the parties involved, particularly if the provider is on the receiving end of a hostile bid. A solid outsourcing arrangement, however, is structured to anticipate and respond to futures changes. This is a necessity in a business relationship that spans multiple years. M&A is an event that buyers must proactively address as part of their outsourcing strategy.
