Mergers & Acquisitions

We offer a network built up by the founders and others in the Group over more than 30 years, transaction experience and technical skills that deliver results for Clients. Our track record speaks for itself.

Disposals

Selling a company is something a client sometimes does only once. We offer intuition, creativity and transaction experience with an in depth knowledge of local regulations, and the ability to obtain reliable information.

We have a wide ranging network built up by the founders and others in the Group over more than 30 years from which to target China based buyers, venture capital, private equity, hedge funds and international or multinational companies. A structured sale process can create competitive tension to maximise the price for the seller or can find the buyer the seller never thought of and negotiate a knockout price the seller never thought of either.

 

WE OFFER:

  • Analysis and valuation – developing a thorough understanding of your business and its drivers in developing a robust valuation model
  • Buyer search – establishing an initial list of potential bidders
  • Marketing – preparing a timetable, a ‘teaser’ and an information memorandum and gathering formal expressions of interests

  • Bidder due diligence – managing the process to allow short listed bidders to complete a thorough assessment and maximise their valuations
  • Negotiation and closing – managing the process of negotiating on final terms and conditions and assisting in contract negotiations
Joint Ventures

In China, a joint venture may be more advantageous than an outright acquisition, and business skills brought by your local partner can be the key to success.

The local partner can be passive or can be one who opens doors and facilitates expansion.

Alternatively, both parties can be actively involved benefiting from each other’s expertise. Finding the right joint venture partner and constructing a suitable vehicle is critical. This requires creativity, transaction experience, international know how and local radar. We offer all this.

 

FOR JOINT VENTURES, WE ADVISE ON:

  • The objectives
  • The contribution of the parties
  • The role and involvement of the parties
  • The terms and duration of the joint venture
  • Allocation of revenues and expenses
  • Dispute resolution
  • Exit

"For M&As, none of the other local firms can touch them. They have a track record of success to prove it."
