Required Reading For M&A Advisors

Anyone who has bought 40 companies in six years ought to know something about mergers, acquisitions and the why/how of making the purchase.

Look no further than Cisco Systems' President CEO John Chambers who has made a tremendous impact on both Cisco and the high-tech world since he took over the company in 1991.

The October edition of Business 2.0 features an interview with John Chambers in which he reveals his philosophy about acquisitions, mergers and corporate growth.

Despite the fact that Cisco is red hot, Chambers' candor is a good example to follow in terms of how to develop partnerships that make sense, and when to dive into the quagmire of today's hottest industries.

If you are advising any clients in an M&A capacity, this interview is a must-read.
