Mergers and Acquisitions

Every business needs to be well prepared for a merger or acquisition whether as a buyer or a seller. GI can help you to best place your company early for what is an inevitable situation for most. This is essential if you are to optimise outcomes for all stakeholders in the process.

GI can work with you as a seller to:

  • Understand the factors that will drive up the value of your business
  • Take actions which will optimise the value of assets in the business
  • Develop strategies which will maximise the number of potential suitors
  • Align your broader strategic planning with an exit strategy
  • Manage those risks which may reduce the future sale value of the business
  • Optimise the use of specialist advisers (lawyers, tax accountants, valuers)
  • Manage the sale negotiations with the buyer and their representatives

GI can work with you as a buyer to:

  • Identify potential targets
  • Undertake due diligence on targets from a strategic, financial and operational perspective
  • Develop strategies to build relationships before the dance starts so you know what you are getting in to
  • Develop and execute funding strategies
  • Align your broader strategic planning with an acquisition strategy
  • Optimise the use of specialist advisers (lawyers, tax accountants, valuers)
  • Manage those risks which may reduce the value of the business being acquired
  • Manage the purchase negotiations with the seller and their representatives

GI can collaboratively work with your organisation to help identify those areas where most value can be achieved through a better understanding of your business growth or exit strategies. We are more than happy to have a no obligation discussion on a collaborative way forward.
