“Managing personalities and expectations are some of the greatest challenges in acquisitions and investments into SMEs. Often times it’s just a single word that can make the difference between a done deal and an aborted deal. I have seen enough in my years of experience to know that aside from being flexible there is a large degree of serendipity involved in the closure of successful deals. Having a deep knowledge of balance sheets and its interpretation is a very advantageous tool but having the ability to understand what drives founders and entrepreneurs seals the deal. I am more inclined towards the latter because I’d like to be in the right place, right time and with the right word or words”
