Corporate Finance

Are you taking the best decision for the future of your business?

  • Where is your business heading?
  • Do you need capital or are you seeking a strategic partner?
  • What is the best action plan to reduce costs and dispose of your least profitable assets?
  • Are you looking to expand or diversify through acquisition?
  • Are you looking to sell your business?

For a variety of reasons, many acquisitions fail to live up to expectations.

  • An inappropriate financial structure
  • A poor strategic fit
  • Over-optimistic estimates of potential synergies
  • Inability to identify or quantify recurring revenues and risks
  • Lack of an integration plan

Evaluating a business in another country increases these risks still further

You are faced with another language, a cultural barrier, a different business culture, unfamiliar legal systems and accounting principles where transfer costs and tax are handled differently and where the government can play a significant role. Yet at the same time, international transactions frequently offer the best opportunities for growth:

  • higher yields through savings on a significant scale
  • new markets to target
  • access to raw materials
  • A potential means of guarding against seasonality
