Merger, sale & purchase of business

The integration of businesses or the purchase or sale of a business is likely to be one of the key transactions in your commercial life. Structuring it in a way that maximises the upside and manages the downside is the single most important thing you can do. Getting it right at the outset means no surprises or unplanned for issues down the track. Little things can become big things if not handled correctly so we focus as much on the detail as we do on the big picture.

Collaborating with your other key advisors, such as your accountant, is a core element of our approach. Those who know your business the best will give us key insights into all of the important issues.

Each transaction is unique and will involve consideration of, at the very least, the following key elements:

  • What are you buying or selling? Assets or the shares in the business?
  • Valuations – tangible and intangible assets
  • Risk managing legacy issues and accrued exposure
  • Restraints
  • Taxation
  • Payment structure and security
  • Funding
  • Governance
  • Regulatory issues
  • Decision making
  • Structuring – ownership and control
  • Asset protection
