What Questions Arise from the Facebook Acquisition of Instagram?

A recent Inc.com article talks about the recent acquisition of Instagram by Facebook and how Mark Zuckerberg had negotiated the deal on his own without consulting with the board of Facebook.

The article’s author asks the questions:

  • Is this the correct way to structure an acquisition deal?
  • Is this the correct way to work with your company’s board?

The article goes on to state that between 50%-80% of mergers & acquisition deals fail. So, only time will tell whether Facebook’s acquisition of Instagram will pay off in the future.
