Learn how to find high-growth markets best suited to your company’s strategic plans.

The New Year offers a fresh start for setting goals and creating a positive tone for the rest of the year. If you strategize well, you will find unique opportunities in the next 12 months to grow your business through M&A.

Before rushing off to find companies to acquire, however, make sure you are looking at the right markets. A business that is profitable today in a declining market may be struggling or even gone in a year. Find out where future demand is. Think about what markets you’d like to reach, which industries are growing, and what your customers are demanding. Evaluate which of these markets best fits into your strategic plan for your business.
