Notes on Buying a Company

When you buy a company, you are buying:

* Resources / Assets <- easy to assimilate
* Processes <- hard to assimilate
* Values / Priorities / Vision <- nearly impossible to assimilate

Buying IP is like buying a lottery ticket - you never know if it will pay off.

With thanks to Horace Dediu.
