In my previous blog, I mentioned what we learned from our acquisition of Tetra4D. Now I’d like to share the positives we discovered. These are a few upsides we see already, but we expect more to emerge. Though we had to learn some lessons along the way, there haven’t been any serious downsides, just new and interesting challenges to grapple with. In short, I would absolutely do it again.
In a previous blog, I noted how incredibly rare it is for a company to give an honest assessment of how things panned out after an acquisition, both positively and negatively. In the heady first days, there is always talk of synergies, new markets, revenue growth, combined talents, etc. But we all know that things very rarely go exactly as planned, which means that there are surprises (of both the positive and negative variety) to learn from. If only those lessons were routinely and widely shared.
