Selling a company as a going concern is frequently the most preferable outcome. This may include divesting some or all of the business operating units – individually or as a whole. In these circumstances, an understanding of the timing constraints faced by the business is critical, as is an understanding of the relative positions of all of the stakeholders. Properly identifying acquisition candidates and preparing the company or business unit(s) for sale is vital to a successful outcome. We understand the process and more importantly, we have managed the process numerous times resulting in the highest and fastest value for all stakeholders.
Similarly, acquiring a distressed company or business unit requires careful due diligence to avoid acquiring unwanted or unknown liabilities. This requires properly quantifying the risks involved. Our experience allows us to aid our clients, quickly and decisively, in analyzing, negotiating and structuring these types of transactions. We also develop post-acquisition integration plans, since often the real value obtained is only gained when the acquired business unit is successfully integrated and the synergy values of the combined entity are realized.
