Reorganisations Acquisitions/Mergers/Disposals

Buying a business

The support and assistance of trained professionals is invaluable when identifying and negotiating with potential targets. We can help you:

  • identify potential targets
  • screen targets for suitability
  • prepare a negotiating strategy
  • raise the necessary capital
  • develop an integration plan
  • optimise the tax and financial position of the combined enterprise.

Selling a business

Selling a business, however successful, is not easy. It involves detailed preparatory work so that it is presented in its best light to potential purchasers, setting realistic expectations as to the value that can be achieved and various ways a deal could be structured. We have the experience to help owners groom their businesses for sale, advise on the best time to sell and give valuations that are achievable. We can work with you to:

  • value the assets
  • identify and approach suitable purchasers
  • carry out due diligence
  • structure and brokering a deal
  • arrange finance
  • complete the sale

Merging a business

The distinction between a business merger and an acquisition (buying a business) has become increasingly blurred in various respects. From a legal point of view, a merger is a legal consolidation of two companies into one entity, whereas an acquisition occurs when one company takes over another and completely establishes itself as the new owner.

  • This broadly incorporates all of the points above for buying and selling a business
