Mergers & Acquisitions
Ensure peace of mind in a complex process
No matter what the size of the transaction; buying, selling or merging a business is a complex procedure. Without the proper experience and expertise, you could easily find many unanticipated and unwanted surprises.
You need a team of experts to guide you through such transactions, ensuring confidentiality and an appropriate level of due diligence. The benefits? Peace of mind and maximizing value.
- In buying mode, you want to ensure the price you pay for the business is fair.
- In a merger, you need a thorough study to make certain you’re getting a fair share of the new entity and you’re not destroying a good business by merging it with a poor one.
- When selling, you need to know you’re getting the best price possible and there will be no lingering after-sale risks.
- In all cases, you want to effectively structure the deal to minimize tax.
Bottom Line? No matter whether it’s a purchase, merger or sale, SB Partners has a solid process and the ideal experience that maximizes value and mitigates risk.
You benefit from our experience
Regardless of the nature of the transaction, our experienced team works to maximize benefits – and minimize risks – for you.
Our team includes Chartered Business Valuators – highly trained experts who follow the market on a day-to-day basis – who can help you understand valuation issues and the financial terms of the transaction. Our due diligence team provides the knowledge and skills to identify issues critical to the transaction such as unreported liabilities; reliance on key customers, suppliers or employees; and opportunities to achieve economic synergies.
As well, SB Partners has extensive links to financial institutions and resources in the corporate finance marketplace.
Since 2003, SB Partners Corporate Finance Division has applied its creative, strategic expertise on behalf of several clients – large and small. Over that period, we have handled more than 50 transactions valued in excess of $450 million.
Most of them emerge from the ranks of our own client base, but a growing number arrive through referrals from professionals – lawyers and financial service industry experts – with whom we do regular business.
