Maximizing Portfolio Value in a Sale: Capitalizing on the Valuation Variance of Downline MLS Portfolios
M&A activity in payments is prodigious, and maximizing portfolio value in a sale has never been more important. Though the heavy level of deal activity in the marketplace is a fairly current phenomenon ( the past 18 months or so), there’s nothing particularly new about trying to maximize the value of the businesses and/or assets we own when we attempt to sell them.
I recently had the opportunity to attend a Business Solutions Magazine sponsored conference for ISVs, VARs, and MSPs. Though not an owner/operator of the aforementioned business types, I do have a keen interest in the “goings on” of these businesses. I am a consultant and strategic advisor to payments and payments technology companies, and have been on a self-imposed mission to better understand the ISV, VAR, and MSP points of view on payments.
