Value Creation - See things differently

As a corporate or a private equity portfolio company, achieving transformational value through M&A is a challenging endeavour. We help clients to design and deliver value capture at the pre and post deal stage. Accelerating your integration process to ensure a smooth transition from start to finish.

Creating value beyond the deal

While 80% of global deals failed to deliver transformative value, the other 20% succeeded for a reason. Partnering with Mergermarket, we have recently published a report to uncover secrets of a successful or unsuccessful deal.

With our global deals insights, deep industry knowledge and understanding of the local market, we have advised on 20,000+ deals across the globe as of 2018. In 2018, our team won multiple M&A awards, including the Best M&A Advisor (Financial) Award by the China Merger & Acquisition Association.

We are committed to help our clients to capture lasting value in deals. We work with strategic and financial investors to raise capital and complete acquisitions, divestitures and strategic alliances/joint ventures.

  • Strategic review
    The decision of where to play and how to win is key when determining the potential for your business. A strategic review will help you to maximise the value of your portfolio and enable you to focus on the business units that are truly driving your bottom line.

  • Readiness assessment
    A divestment introduces a level of perceived complexity that should be carefully considered. Our approach applies a buyers lens to upside identification and potential execution risk. We will work alongside you to define a process with optionality and make an assessment of your divestment preparedness

  • Preparing for exit
    There are several key questions that you have to ask in preparing to exit, such as: how do I model the business as stand alone and prepare the financials to reflect the perimeter? What transitional agreements do I need? What contracts, legal entities and IP would be affected? What will it cost and who will bear that cost?

  • Transaction execution
    In today’s uncertain economic environment, shareholders are demanding and often unforgiving. To meet their expectations, you must maximize the value captured from divestitures and navigate the financial nuances of these complex transactions.

  • Post deal
    At completion, the benefits and value that the deal was designed to deliver need to be realised. With this in mind, some key questions to consider are: How will the business mitigate stranded costs? How do I begin to exit TSAs and transition to a standalone model?
