Businesses in Louisiana and elsewhere take on new business deal rather frequently. Whether it's a new client or a customer being serviced, most business transactions are rather routine. On the other hand, more complex types of business transactions involve mergers and acquisitions (M&A.) This type of transaction is often a major one, greatly impacting a business on multiple levels.
Because it is considered a major business deal, an M&A has the possibility to fail. In fact, each year, many M&A's fail. While these could be for very diverse and specific reasons, this post will focus on the most common reasons a merger or acquisition might fail.
