You've worked hard to achieve, sustain, and ensure profitability for your business. You've created jobs and opportunities for your employees, and provided valuable products and services for your customers. Now, after all these years, you may begin to think about converting your work into wealth through a potential sale of your business, or growth through acquiring another business. As you begin to focus on your business' future, you may ask yourself many questions. Who might buy my business? What should I look for in a prospective buyer? How should I go about marketing my company for an acquisition? Should I buy a company instead and continue growing? How much is my business even worth? How am I going to solve these issues while maintaining my livelihood?
Our experience as Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A) practitioners informs us that this thought process taken to its logical outcome is filled with possibilities and opportunities. However, it can also be tripped up by certain classic M&A mistakes that: (1) make the process unnecessarily long (sometimes taking 12 to 18 months instead of a focused four to six months); (2) don't result in the highest offer for your business (or you pay too much for another business); or (3) end up in a failed process in which you don't meet your objective to sell your business or buy another one.
We discuss here four of the most classic and potentially most damaging mistakes we have seen in M&A strategy for small and medium sized businesses.

Losing your computers doesn’t have to disrupt your business if you take advantage of the cloud. Solutions like automatic cloud-based backup and collaboration applications allow you to access your data any time from any number of devices.
Yet if you’re like many owners of small-to medium-sized businesses, you may wonder what the “cloud” is and what it can do for your business.
Many IT managers, owners, and CIOs are embracing the benefits of cloud IT. Cloud has now reached critical mass in the consciousness of small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs), whether they are acquiring new software-as-a-service (SaaS) capabilities or making infrastructure upgrades via infrastructure as a service (IaaS). Among companies of all sizes, 50% are currently using at least one public SaaS offering, with a further 20% planning to implement public SaaS within the next year. Platform as a service (PaaS) and IaaS are less deployed today, but those areas are seeing substantial interest and growth.

Why did you become a Managed Services Provider (MSP)?
Of all the things you could be doing with your business, you chose to build a business that delivers proactive
monitoring and management services for IT systems and resources used primarily by small and medium sized
businesses. That sounds like a sound business strategy. As a principal characteristic, you are paid on a
recurring contract basis to deliver services that could have previously been done by customer IT staff or other
outside resources on a reactive time-and-materials basis.
For many medium size businesses, finding the time to proactively manage employee performance is difficult. The emphasis is more often on increasing revenues and achieving stability, especially in the early days. However, as businesses grow, the need for improving staff engagement, productivity and loyalty becomes increasingly important.

Enterprises are increasingly adopting Linux as a secure, reliable and high-performing platform that lowers acquisition and operating costs while providing the agility needed to anticipate and react to changing business conditions.
In particular, the Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) operating environment, which is based on the Linux open-source kernel, has become widely deployed by medium-sized and large businesses, by enterprises in their data centers, and in private and public cloud infrastructures.
RHEL is distributed and supported by Red Hat Inc., the world’s largest provider of open-source software solutions, accounting for 74.7% of worldwide Linux operating system (OS) revenue.
