'Its' refer to 'the acquisition'.

Go for the intended meaning.
A) 'Failing' makes the 'its' ambiguous.
B) Changes meaning as company's full financial impact is not under the discussion.
C) 'acquisition's impact' introduces repetition.
D) 'Financial impact'? Yes. But of what?
E) This clearly maps 'its' with the acceptance of acquisition.

IMO, A talks about Technotip's impact. This is not the correct meaning, hence wrong.

Concluded E using POE

E: Without fully evaluating its financial impact I thought this makes sense as the company did not evaluate its reach of financial impact before accepting the acquisition..
