Praise for Mergers & Acquisitions Playbook
Lessons from the Middle-Market Trenches
"My experiences with more than twenty acquisitions and divestitures, both domestic and international, are accurately reflected in this 'Playbook.' A good acquisition is a thing of beauty, a bad one a curse for many generations. Follow Mark's guidance to the rules of the 'game' and you will come out a winner! We did when we worked with Mark on one of our most important projects."
—Kurt Wiedenhaupt, former Chairman and CEO, American Precision Industries
"The Mergers and Acquisitions Playbook will be an invaluable tool for anyone who is considering selling their business. Mark Filippell incorporates all of the knowledge and experience he has gained from nearly thirty years of working on M&A. The book is well written and easily understood, even for readers who have not been exposed to the world of M&A."
—John G. Nestor, Chairman and CEO, Kirtland Capital Partners
"This extremely readable and thorough book by a veteran 'middle market' investment banker is a 'must' for anyone thinking about selling (or buying or even investing in) a business in that range. He covers almost everything, with useful appendices. His Michigan Law School roots embolden him to include a section on 'Managing the M&A Lawyer.'"
—Richard W. Pogue, former Managing Partner and now Advisor, Jones Day
"The Mergers and Acquisitions Playbook is the 'how to' that you don't learn in business school and is recommended reading for any corporate executive looking to either buy or sell a business. Mark goes way beyond the numbers and reveals the strategy behind executing a good deal."
—Richard D. Weber, President, Atlas Energy, Inc.
"Mark Filippell's Mergers and Acquisitions Playbook offers an experienced professional's comprehensive view into how investment bankers really do sell businesses. It includes a wealth of practical techniques and approaches that makes a difference at every stage of the sale process. As promised, this book really does 'level the playing field.'"
—David L. Jaffe, Managing Partner, Centre Partners Management LLC
