I suppose it would depend on what the acquiring company’s goal is/ what the driver is for the desire to conduct an M&A. The company would be best serve by an acquisition which meets its goals. For e.g. if its goal is eliminating competitors to create a monopoly or become a market leader, then acquiring competitors would best serve its needs, while if its goal is entering new markets or creating synergies in its products line then a vertical acquisition would best serve its needs.
