Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A)

While organic growth provides a solid foundation for any business, it can be a slow process. As such, many companies naturally turn to an acquisition as an immediate boost to growth.

But it is important to evaluate any potential business purchase to get the whole picture. After all, a poor fit, or acquiring a business that has some underlying issues, can be costly.

The first question Kirk Rice will help you answer is whether or not the business is the right fit for you. For example, does its growth strategy sit well with your plans? (We understand this as we’ve been there many times ourselves.)

Only once this has been established can we dig deeper and look at:

  • Developing an acquisition plan
  • Assessing the target and the asking price
  • Negotiating with the sellers
  • Carrying out effective due diligence (tax exposure, financial reviews and off balance sheet liabilities)
  • Raising finance to fund the acquisition (as well as working capital)
  • Financial forecasting
  • Tax planning

Our many years of experience means we will go much further than just looking at figures. Before buying a business of any size, it stands to reason that you’ll want to look under the bonnet a little. So we will help you assess other risks like staff issues, as well as provide insights into the bigger issues such as market drivers.

What’s more, we can look at your finance options to make sure you are making the purchase in the most cost-effective way. We will also point you in the right direction with regards to all of the related legal matter.

All of this means that whatever business you are looking to purchase, you know that your acquisition is sound and provides the right fit.
