We provide a comprehensive range of services in the Merger & Acquisitions process, including identifying suitable buyers for businesses or projects, selecting target companies aligned with strategic objectives, and preparing business plans and financial projection models.

In corporate finance, mergers and acquisitions (M&A) involve the transfer or consolidation of ownership of companies, business organizations, or their operating units with other entities. M&A serves as a strategic management tool, enabling enterprises to expand or streamline operations and alter their business or competitive position.

From a Legal Perspective:

  • A merger legally consolidates two entities into one entity.
  • An acquisition occurs when one entity acquires ownership of another entity’s stock, equity interests, or assets.

From a Commercial and Economic Standpoint:

  • Both types of transactions typically lead to asset consolidation under one entity.
  • The distinction between a “merger” and an “acquisition” may be less clear.
  • An acquisition may place one party’s business under the indirect ownership of the other party’s shareholders.
  • A merger may grant each party’s shareholders partial ownership and control of the combined enterprise.
  • A “merger of equals” occurs when both CEOs agree to join forces for mutual benefit.
  • An unfriendly deal, where the management of the target company opposes the deal
