    A privately owned organisation acquisition is easier.

    This is due to:
    1.) Less interference from board members/shareholders
    2.) Straight forward transaction
    3.) Tend to deal directly with business owners and lessen chain of communication

    This will be dependent on a number of factors such as if the stock is widely held, are there majority shareholders, is the company in distress and what regulatory approvals are required? A privately held company with a single shareholder might be more challenging if the price they demand is not reflective of fair value, compared to a public company that may or may not be widely held but where the board has a fiduciary duty to evaluate an offer.

    Other factors to consider include the goals and complexity of the integration after the acquisition is approved.
