Mergers & Acquisitions

How It Works!

Mergers and acquisitions (M&A) are transactions in which the ownership of companies, other business organizations, or their operating units are transferred or consolidated with other entities. As an aspect of strategic management, M&A can allow enterprises to grow or downsize, and change the nature of their business or competitive position.

A merger or acquisition can add considerable value to a business, but making sure that each stage of the transaction process-from valuation to negotiation and completion-is successful demands considerable experience and knowledge.

Our services are designed to help our clients reach their strategic goals by identifying and then implementing opportunities to merge with or acquire other businesses.

Due Delligence

How It Works!

It is the investigation or exercise of care that a reasonable business or person is expected to take before entering into an agreement or contract with another party, or an act with a certain standard of care.

Properly undertaking due diligence investigations is a complex and time-consuming process that requires a great deal of training and experience. Many industry professionals undertake what they believe to be legitimate due diligence investigations by simply performing internet searches of names and phrases using internet search engines.

This produces unverified results that can be manipulated. They are also just as likely to produce fake news as anything else. That kind of shallow, ineffective investigation does not meet our standards.

Due Diligence investigations of counter-parties are essential for the success of any deal. They ensure clients comply with the law, and help to establish the basis for mutually beneficial business relationship. Knowing our customers is very important to us, so performing client due diligence for every transaction in which we are involved has the desired effect of protecting our clients and ourselves.

Financial Modeling

How It Works!

Financial modeling refers to the building of mockups with variables and calculations that aim to emulate and explain a firm's or a portfolio's performance

Financial modeling translates a set of assumptions about a particular business event to a set of numerical projections. The model captures all the variables, and quantifies them to produce a mathematical interpretation of the business event on Excel spreadsheets.

In that way, financial analysts comprehend the event and can accurately estimate a firm's future growth. Often, a financial model summarizes the findings, suggesting a required, or an alternative action. The most commonly used financial models are the capital asset pricing model (CAPM), the dividend discount model (DDM), the discounted cash flow model (DCF), and more sophisticated models such as the leveraged buyout model (LBO) and the merger & acquisition model (M&A).

An essential component to managing and leading a profitable business is the ability to accurately forecast and project cash flow. Whether computing simple projections or building robust financial modeling tools, our Business Advisory team has performed and developed numerous types of financial analyses and models for use in a wide range of applications and industries. These tools help our clients make informed decisions regarding capital expenditures, buying or selling a business or simply to better prepare for the future. Our team has the ability to customize and execute each project based on the clients specific needs and requirements. Examples include:

- Cash Flow Modeling
- Financial Model Review
- Profitability
- Budget Analysis
- Cost-benefit Analysis
