Mergers and acquisitions

Unlock shareholder value through divestments, acquisitions and capital raisings.

M&A can be one of the quickest routes to growth but is also laden with risk and complexity. Partnering with a trusted and credible advisor is key to making sure you get the maximum return on your deal.

A range of lead advisory services

Our M&A team provide integrated financial and strategic advice to help you complete effective deals that deliver an optimal outcome for your shareholders.

Our approach is bespoke, robust and targeted to the needs of each client, their strategic priorities and how they can be met.

Our strategic advisory services include:

  • divestments
  • mergers
  • bolt-on acquisitions
  • takeovers
  • joint ventures
  • capital raisings
  • government tender processes
  • analysis of strategic options.

Sell-side, buy-side and capital raisings

We provide independent advice and directly assist our clients to execute their objectives.

On the sell-side, we:

  • advise on optimal sale structures (e.g. IPO vs trade sale)
  • identify and approach potential buyers
  • prepare the necessary marketing materials
  • manage the due diligence process (tax, legal, financial)
  • provide valuation advice
  • assist with negotiations through to the completion of the transaction.

On the buy-side we:

  • help clients identify and evaluate potential acquisition targets
  • provide valuation advice
  • assist with negotiations
  • manage the due diligence process
  • assist with the procurement of acquisition finance.

We can also assist with capital raisings, helping clients with their funding strategies from beginning to end. This can involve funding sources including venture capital, private equity, infrastructure funding and IPOs.

As an independent corporate advisor, we work with clients to develop strategies and processes that are impartial and uncompromised.

Global merger and acquisitions expertise

We are able to draw on our international network and integrated advisory expertise across all aspects of a deal to maximise shareholder value, while maintaining competitive tension and minimising execution risk.
