  1. Executive Summary

Expanding into new global markets through acquisition is much the same as venturing into a new enterprise. Most multinational companies often fail to succeed in international markets because of poor or lack of due diligence of the host-nation’s culture, as well as country specific aspects such as national politics, societal attitudes, technological differences and economic barriers.

Also, because Indians mostly speak English and their business counterparts and customers in France speak French, Language barrier may affect the company operations and could cause increased costs for hired translators and cultural misunderstanding.
