Successful acquisitions and the search for acquisition targets
Sustainable growth is becoming an ever greater challenge in the disruptive market environment. In order to remain successful over the long term, companies must recognise changes in the market at an early stage, acquire new customers and open up new business areas. Mergers & acquisitions are one possible solution. But transactions are complex and need to be well thought out and planned. Many questions emerge. How do you identify the ideal transaction property? Is the timing right? How do you prepare your deals in a strategic way? And how do you ensure that transactions are not only worthwhile in the short term, but also generate sustainable value-added contributions? We know the answers and ensure a smooth process.
For company acquisitions, mergers, disposals, spin-offs, carve-outs, IPOs or restructurings, PwC’s M&A team is your partner in all phases of the transaction. Working with you, we will develop a customised strategy, successfully implement your deal and make you fit for the future.
Our network is your strength. We work hand in hand with our legal, tax, due diligence, valuation and integration colleagues to assist you with all issues that go beyond the actual Mergers & Acquisitions process. Your ambitions paired with our industry expertise are both the drive behind and guarantee for success. We are fully committed to you, drawing on our expertise from more than 300 transactions worldwide every year. We always draw on our industry experts and the latest digital tools.
Our top priority is to help you reach your targets. As lead adviser, we guide companies, owners and management through the entire transaction process. We will work with you to develop a targeted acquisition or disposal strategy and ensure professional and thorough process management. During negotiations, we stand by your side and bring our extensive deal expertise to bear. The result is commercially, fiscally and legally sound documents of sale that bring you one step closer to a successful company disposal, merger or acquisition. It goes without saying that we will also provide you with support in the period between signing and closing to ensure that everything runs smoothly. We always make sure that the strain on the ongoing business is as low as possible and also keep an eye on resources. Regardless of whether you want to put your corporate strategy to the test or open up new markets – you can rely on us. Our focus is your success. Together we can achieve it.
