Acquisitions and disposals

Organic growth can only get your business so far.  After that the best way to improve your competitive position in the marketplace may be through a merger or acquisition. This can be a complex and time consuming process.  If it is not well researched and skillfully negotiated it could make matters worse, not better. You will need the support and assistance of trained professionals. We can help you:

  • Identify potential targets for M&A
  • Screen targets for suitability
  • Prepare a negotiating strategy & drive the process
  • Raise the necessary capital
  • Brief and manage lawyers
  • Develop an integration plan
  • Optimise the tax and financial position of the deal and the combined enterprise

At other times you may decide that the time is right for you to improve your profitability through a disposal. This could be as part of your overall “life plan”, but could also be to help to drive the profitability of the ongoing business.  We can help with valuing the assets, finding suitable purchasers, and negotiating the sale.

Don't take risks with your business, the difference between a well planned and managed acquisition can not only be £000’s, but also between it actually happening or not.

If you are selling your business, you only get one shot to get it right and having done it a number of times we will make sure you do.
