I agree with Sebastien. Also to note the target company could have a much smaller employee population so some of the changes that the acquirer might want to make could have detrimental effects like increased flight risk of the employees. In a startup, one employee is more likely to do the job of 3-5 people, than in a bigger company that is more developed. That also means that the start up probably doesn’t have a full integration team like the acquirer might have so being conscious of how much time an integration could take for the key employees that also handle day-to-day operations could be really important.
