Acquisitions & Mergers
Whether you are considering buying a business or undertaking a merger, we have the experience and expertise you require.
Are you getting a good deal? Is the business right for you? Can you afford it? Have all avenues for future growth been investigated? We ask the right questions so that you can make the right decision.
Mergers and acquisitions can be complex, and they don't always go as expected. We have assisted many clients with mergers and acquisitions over the years, and we can share our experience from those deals with you.
We can assist in all aspects of the merger and acquisition process from finding the right business, performing detailed and robust valuations, synergy analysis, providing advice on acquisition structure, leading negotiations on your behalf and undertaking overall due diligence including the appointment of other specialist advisors if required.
Our experience will ensure your merger or acquisition realises the potential you hope for.
If you're thinking about buying a business, you want to make sure you're paying a fair price for it. Likewise, if you're thinking about selling your business, you want to make sure you sell it for what it is worth. Knowing what your business is worth is also handy for obtaining finance or attracting investors.
There are many different ways to value a business, and we have the knowledge and experience to ensure the best method is used. We analyse the finances, look for trends in the industry's market, calculate the value of any goodwill and estimate future profits to arrive at a value and detailed justification.
Know where you stand.

Whether you're thinking about retirement or ready for your next project, having an exit strategy is important. Even if you are planning to transfer the business to a family member, a comprehensive succession plan is essential for a smooth transition and to ensure your legacy lives on.
We'll take you through the process of identifying the financial risks and opportunities as well as the responsibilities that need to be transferred to the next owner. A good succession plan will ensure you can transition out of your business easily and with the confidence that the business will continue to operate smoothly after you've left.
We recommend starting your planning early, before you need it. An up to date succession plan will mean you are prepared if you have to leave your business sooner than anticipated.
Selling your business
Selling a business can be an emotional and stressful time. There is a number of administrative tasks to attend to as well as financial and legal arrangements to be made. There’s also the question of how do you know if you’re getting the best the best price for your business?
