Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A) Advisory

Mauritz & Company provides M&A; support throughout the transaction from pre-deal evaluation through to completion and post-deal integration or separation. Our industry teams are focused on value creation and helping our clients to deliver successful transactions.

Many transactions still do not create value. However, a recent global M&A survey shows that companies with sound M&A strategies and execution do outperform their competitors. From identifying the deal at the outset to helping realise synergy benefits post-deal, companies that enhance shareholder value understand that a professional and systematic approach to M&A is essential. Respondents described due diligence as the most important pre-deal activity, and they noted that giving a higher priority to synergies and integration planning makes a significant difference to the outcome of the deal.

To make the most of a merger and acquisition, companies need to avoid pitfalls and exploit opportunities at each stage of the transaction process and beyond.

All deals are different, but our research and experience suggest a limited set of hard and soft keys can significantly increase the likelihood of creating a value-enhancing deal. These include synergy evaluation, integration planning and due diligence, selecting the management team, resolving cultural issues and communications.

We can provide transaction assistance throughout the deal:

  • Finding the right deal by evaluating the theoretical synergy benefits and assessing the potential impact of the merger in a competitive environment.
  • Winning the deal through the identification of potential value and evaluating risks inherent throughout the deal process.
  • Executing the deal – managing the process effectively and efficiently.
  • Realising value fast – helping to deliver implementation and settling completion issues promptly.
