#Fincabulary 13 – Acquisition Indigestion

Acquisition Indigestion may also describe a situation in which the purchasing company has difficulty making the most out of a takeover. The same outcome relates to mergers and acquisitions that have gone sour, as companies may get indigestion when acquiring too many targets or purchasing firms that don’t integrate well.
