Mergers & Acquisitions refers to the aspect of corporate strategy, corporate finance and management dealing with the buying, selling and combining of different companies that can aid, finance, or help a growing company in a given industry grow rapidly without having to create another business entity.

A merger or acquisition can add considerable value to a business, but making sure that each stage of the transaction process "from valuation to negotiation and completion" is successful demands considerable experience and knowledge.

Careful planning and co-ordination is needed to achieve a successful outcome to any business restructuring - whether it is an acquisition, merger, public offering, disposal or a change of ownership. For privately-held companies in need of strategic advice, we can help in developing an effective business plan, while also considering options such as a management or institutional buy-out or buy-in; raising development or seed capital; and in disposing of a non-core division.

Our services are designed to help our clients reach their strategic goals by identifying and then implementing opportunities to merge with or acquire other businesses. We identify appropriate buyers and will implement a sale to generate the best price for our client.
