Over the last couple of years, the not-for-profit industry has seen an increase in the number of merger and acquisition (M&A) opportunities.
Depending on your situation, there are potentially many benefits to undertaking a merger with another organisation. These typically include achieving economies of scale and/or expanding your footprint nationally to enable further growth in your organisation. However, if the M&A is not done right, there are plenty of pitfalls that may arise.
During this event, we look at the changing landscape of the NFP sector, and examine the benefits and potential pitfalls of an M&A. Find out the key things you need to consider before entering an M&A and the processes you need to put in place to make sure your M&A is successful.
You will also have the opportunity to find out about the first-hand experiences of Lyn Morgain, Chief Executive of CoHealth and John Barkla, President of Birdlife Australia. CoHealth came into existence in 2014 following the merger of Doutta Galla Community Health, North Yarra Community Health and Western Region Health Centre. Birdlife Australia was formed out of the merger of Bird Observation and Conservation Australia (BOCA) and Birds Australia.
