When managing a company decides to grow organically or through acquisition; they need to consider their strategy carefully. Organic growth increases the existing turnover of a company or brings profits generated within the company. Organic growth is the real growth for the company’s core. Is a good indicator of how management has used its own internal resources to expand profits. Organic growth also identifies if managers have used their skills to improve the business.
Compare this strategy for a company that has grown by acquiring other companies. Naspers continued the acquisition of last year’s trial, but due to limited opportunity this year, decided to grow organically. Managing Naspers believes that internet valuations have become bloated and good value is hard to come by. Acquisition growth, however, has even more advantages and is often considered an option faster and cheaper with less risk attached to it.

For an investor, fast growth looks good, but companies can get into trouble when they grow too fast because they don’t keep such growth rates and their Share prices suffer.
