Depends on what your looking to gain - market share, expertise, access to technology, extending your geographical coverage etc

What is it that you are actually buying????


What would I look for in these circumstances (not in any particular order);
1. Check for common cultures - that will impact how long you retain the acquired staff
2. Common architectures - training & purchasing power
3. Integration of the two orginisations (people & technology)
4. Will the other managemnet stay - are they instrumental in the other co. success?
5. Do you want staff fromthe aquired to stay - who?
6. How long to get your money back - profitability?


Just a few quick thoughts.
