Buying, selling or raising finance are not part of the everyday for most businesses, yet we deal with them routinely. We work with our clients and other advisors, tailoring our services to the specific needs of our client. Areas of our expertise include:
We have considerable experience advising clients on MBO’s MBIs and VIAMBOs. We often act as lead advisors negotiating the deal, introducing the right funders, structuring the transaction in a commercially appropriate tax-efficient manner.
We identify target businesses, including those not actually for sale. We negotiate to ensure you get the best deal and structure, working alongside lawyers to minimise the buyer’s risk.
Disposing of a business can be complex and we often work with owners well in advance of a sale to prepare the business in order to maximise its value. We can identify strategic buyers and negotiate the optimum deal for the shareholders to ensure they achieve the outcome they deserve.
We provide a wide range of valuation services for a variety of circumstances, including: valuations for M&A deals, restructuring, shareholder disputes, tax purposes, expert witness, funding and investment requirements.
We can provide both vendor and acquisitional due diligence. Financial due diligence is a critical aspect of any transaction as it can affect the purchase price or even the decision on whether to proceed with the transaction. We tailor the scope of our work to ensure our due diligence is focused on the areas that are critical to the business.
Our relationships with equity, mezzanine and debt funders – combined with our knowledge on how to structure a proposal, assists clients in seeking and obtaining the right kind of funding for their business.
