Mergers & Aquisitions

Mergers and Acquisitions play a vital role in a company's growth by allowing it to expand existing operations or access new markets.

We provide advice that ranges from the establishment of acquisition objectives through to the execution of a sales contract. Our team is experienced in advising clients on all phases of the merger and acquisition process, including:

  • Identifying specific target entities;

  • Establishing an estimated value for target entities;

  • Conducting both financial, commercial and taxation due diligence of the target entities;

  • Assisting with bid negotiation and closing the transaction; and

  • Structuring and raising finance for a transaction.
