Transaction Advisory & Consulting


Transaction Support

Business Acquisition transactions take place to increase profitability, growth and competitiveness, and these factors have certain degree of uncertainty which can make or break the acquirer. Our transaction support service enables the client to carry out their acquisition deals with knowledge of potential risks for making more informed decisions.

It is well known that a large percentage of mergers and acquisitions fail to meet investors or shareholders expectations. The reason? Too much emphasis on completing the transaction and not enough emphasis on making the transaction work. For your acquisition to be more successful, you need an advisor with strong due diligence, structuring and business integration skills.

Our professionals work closely with your staff, attorneys, and other advisors - and become valued members of your transaction team. Our focus is to get in to the deep of the transaction and understand each minute aspect of the deal to enable the inform decision. And after closing, when other advisors have departed, we roll up our sleeves and help you implement your strategies to make the acquisition work.

Pre-Deal Evaluation and Due Diligence

Early identification and study of every possible key driver of the deal avoids costly mistakes and provides an upper hand for the negotiation. Therefore we offer the first phase evaluation and due diligence which help client to take important decision regarding the execution of the deal. Here we review the financial and commercial viability of the transaction such that management can decide whether to make an offer and at what price.


Our due diligence process

  • Identifies key risks and potential deal breakers.
  • Assesses target's strengths and weaknesses against industry benchmarks.
  • Evaluates potential investment in context of your existing business.
  • Identify potential competitive and operational risks and opportunities associated with the target 

Transaction Evaluation

While due diligence take care of the intricate details related to the health of the target, there is also a need for looking at the bigger picture. The bigger picture here is the smooth integration of the target with the existing goals and business plans. The target may be itself be in excellent condition, but if it does not fit in the overall vision of the acquirer, then there needs to be a thorough evaluation of the whole transaction itself.
Transaction Evaluation also involves the evaluation of the pricing of the transaction after understanding the risks as identified by the due diligence.

Structuring the Deal

Within the commercial framework of any deal, usually a wide range of financing and structuring options are possible. Our professionals who are familiar with the tax laws in the states and countries where you will be doing business focus on the most effective options in terms of cost and tax efficiency of the deal financing.
