FDs anticipate merger 'boom'
Financial directors working within the UK's corporations must be prepared to participate in a post-recession merger boom, according to a management consultancy.
Ineum Consulting has suggested that senior financial board members must consider opportunities to acquire companies that can take their corporations in a new strategic direction.
This imminent change in the corporate landscape could lead to an increased demand for interim executives with particular experience in leading businesses through periods of recovery.
Writing for Director of Finance Online, Luke Williams, forecast that in six to nine months the credit crisis will be over and that a number of market openings will be available for savvy companies.
He wrote: "Finance directors will need to be ahead of the game if they are to be part of the boom and reap the rewards. Those caught off-guard may very quickly miss out."
This anticipated increase in mergers and acquisitions was also predicted by the business consultancy Deloitte last month, which discovered that 83 per cent of finance directors are optimistic about the economy.
