The merger strategy requires an understanding of the industry landscape and predictable market performance. These include economic and demographic trends, industry competitive assessment, and technological trends. This helps our clients develop an understanding of the direction that their industry is taking and therefore consider merger & acquisition options to achieve their growth objectives. This understanding builds the foundation for the type of transaction and target profiles that would complement the client’s business model, close performance gaps, take advantage of market opportunities, reduce costs and close the performance gaps.
Assessing the targets that would be a best fit requires appropriate evaluation criteria is alignment with the merger strategy. We help our clients gather relevant information to review and assess the attractiveness of various acquisition targets.
For the acquirer to realize and maximize shareholder value, we help our clients identify the sources of synergistic value and ensure strategic fit with the potential acquisition targets. Acquisition targets can be identified through investment banks or through Corporate Development teams.
