Frequently Asked Questions

What is M&A?

It stands for mergers and acquisitions. Acquisition means to buy another company from current shareholders. Merger means to integrate the purchased company into your company.

How would I benefit from M&A?

Basically, M&A is a path to growing your company in size, an alternative to growing organically (i.e. from within) only. Through M&A, your company grows in size by integrating the assets and personnel from other companies. However, size is not the only advantage. Among other benefits to you are as follows:
– synergy gained from merging a competitor, supplier, or distributor;
– acceleration of your business plans (e.g., by acquiring a distributor that has an overseas subsidiary, you could begin expanding abroad sooner than you planned);
– acquisition of revenue-generating brands and goodwill from acquired companies that would have taken longer for your company to develop on its own; and
– acquisition of an already skilled workforce.

What is exactly your role in my M&A exercise?

Our role would depend on for what purpose have you engaged us. However, upon engaging us, providing advice on M&A exercise is standard for whatever purpose.

Apart from providing advisory service, we also provide services as facilitators for your M&A deals. In facilitating the deals for you, we could help you with arranging the paperwork for buying and selling companies.

Why do I need someone else to help me with my M&A deals?

Firstly, M&A is a set of complex processes that requires knowledge and experience in finance, law, business, and also in negotiation skills. All of those are needed in order to: assess rewards and risks in the deals (e.g., performing due diligence checks on your targeted companies to find out how risky is it to invest in them); structuring deals; and facilitating the buying and selling by preparing all necessary documentations (including financial statements).

It’s possible for you to undertake all tasks yourself effectively. However, the likelihood of getting the best out of M&A deals diminishes as you have to split time between performing these tasks and running your company. Therefore, it’d be more effective for you engage the services of qualified professionals, even if you still prefer to take on some of the tasks yourself.

What sort of due diligence do you normally carry out for M&A deals?

We specialise in performing financial, tax, and legal due diligence. Financial due diligences involve closely examining targeted companies’ financial records to ascertain at least two things, which are: whether there are any financial irregularities; and whether the companies are still solvent. Tax due diligences involves checking the companies’ tax records to confirm whether all of their tax obligations have been met or whether they have violated tax laws. Lastly, legal due diligences involve examining legal records to determine whether the targeted companies are facing severe legal problems or whether there are legal issues that could turn in to legal problems in the future.
