The business case also needs to take into consideration the resources available to the acquisition team, such as staff and machinery.
Integration strategy is critical for determining the success of any business acquisition activity.

A successful acquisition process will be incomplete without an effective marketing strategy.

Successful marketing involves the use of a strong and compelling offering document, and the identification of appropriate customer segments. The document should address the unique selling points of the target firm and the advantages that the target firm can realize by acquiring the target firm. The marketing plan should include specific financial metrics and reporting elements and should be backed by a detailed marketing strategy and performance metrics.

However, working through a commercial bank may not be practical for some business firms because of certain loan eligibility requirements. When determining if financing is essential for acquisition, business owners must determine whether they can afford the costs of a commercial mortgage and the time delay inherent in working with a commercial banker.
