Mergers and acquisitions

Mergers and Acquisitions

Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) can be complicated, time consuming transactions and if not managed effectively, can lead to problems within the original business. It may also be difficult for the business to secure the necessary funding required for the transaction to take place.

The main services that we can provide to your business include:

  • Developing an acquisition strategy.
  • Identifying potential targets.
  • Appraising targets and assessing the fit.
  • Gathering information on the target.
  • Valuation.
  • Feasibility of the proposed acquisition.
  • Formulating an offer.
  • Negotiating with the vendor.
  • Developing the business plan and forecasts.
  • Raising funding.
  • Due diligence.
  • Completion.
  • Post-acquisition integration.
