$100 Million Market Cap Holding Co.  E:64  Michael Girdley  Top M&A Entrepreneurs

Every week, we talk to the "Top M&A Entrepreneurs" active today to ask them about their process, where and how they source their deals, Industries they work in, how they analyze deals, valuations, and pricing, negotiating the deal, due diligence, transition planning and closing.    

Our guests have acquired over 600 businesses and over $52 Billion in Value! 

We talk about their successes, failures, their acquisition model, their acquisition scorecard to evaluate potential acquisitions, finding the right type of seller, identifying the right type of characteristics in an acquisition, deals to avoid, the financial deal stack, buying a business with no money down or raising capital to financing the deal, what M&A means to their business, their results, how they do it and why they do it.  

We also talk about the  types of businesses they buy if they already have an existing platform business and how you can turn expenses to profits, acquire customers faster and how bolts-on can grow their business faster than organic growth.  We ask about how patience, ego, and boldness affects acquisitions.

We also dive into their origin story,  how they started,  their call to adventure, the mentors who inspired them, the major challenges they faced, how they crossed the threshold, sharing their ordeal, rebirth, what keeps them motivated and how process changed their life and business.

About our company, Stack Acquisitions.  We acquire great companies.   And we help other companies acquire great companies.    We always offer fair, fast and friendly terms.   Buying or selling,  we only work with people we like. 

We have learned how to acquire companies by doing it ourselves and by learning from the best.
