Mergers and Acquisitions
Successfully creating shareholder value through consolidation requires
a deep understanding of both the client and the prevailing industry
and regulatory landscape. We assist clients both on the buy and
sell sides, aiding them through the complex process of candidate
identification and screening, corporate and regulatory strategy
development, valuation, assessment of combined company risks, regulatory
approval, deal execution, and final strategy implementation.
As part of this process, we often develop rigorous long-term fundamental
valuations to quantify tangible sources of value and risk, in some
cases as an independent assessment for our client. Our analysis
often involves an examination of the potential impacts on the client’s
portfolio risks and the opportunities to hedge such exposures. Combining
this analysis with our industry and regulatory experience, we are
often able to develop mechanisms to better ensure shareholder value
from the merger.
