Often when people talk about M&A transactions these days, the focus is on private equity acquirers and transactions.  This is not surprising considering the volume and impact of sponsor-backed M&A activity.  However, there is another big and important set of acquirors – strategic acquirors.  As the name implies, unlike financial acquirors, strategic acquisitions often focus on strengthening an existing business.  The reasons may include expanding geography reach, entering into a new and complimentary product-line or service or rapidly adding additional revenue for an existing product-line or service.  Not only are the reasons driving the merger or acquisition unique and distinct for strategic acquirors, the process, methods and legal considerations are different.
