“If you are willing to acquire the target company, it’s because you found something good. And that good was built for the team that they have. So it’s critical that you maintain their team as much as you can and integrate them into your team.” - Juan Guillermo Castaneda.

According to Juan, M&A in Latin America is mostly around mid-sized, family-owned companies. Just like anywhere else, medium-sized companies come with a lot of inefficiencies as their processes are not refined, like their accounting practices which usually don’t have IFRS accounting standards.
