Mergers and Acquisitions

During a business’s lifecycle, management teams often consider acquiring or merging with others to boost growth. Deals can be complex, but when executed well they create sustainable value. Our end-to-end advisory services will help guide you every step of the way

Realise your business's potential with a laser-focused growth strategy

Mergers and acquisitions can accelerate a business’s growth strategy, transform its operations and increase its market share. But M&A comes with its own risks and complexities that, when not mitigated, can derail a business strategy. Combining two companies involves more than a conversation and a handshake – valuations, balance sheets, cash flows, culture and profitability all need to be analysed and managed.

Successful and sustainable M&A

For some businesses, there may be the potential for growth in the current crisis, such as opportunistic M&A deals. For others, this period can be used to consider the longer-term strategy, to ensure they have a medium term liquidity position that allows them to take advantage of opportunities in the post-Covid-19 world.

At Mazars, we work with companies of all sizes across a broad range of sectors, from owner-managed businesses to international companies and private equity funds. With our international perspective and team-based approach, we provide support and guidance across:

  • Negotiations
  • Acquisition
  • Mergers
  • Disposals
  • Fundraising
  • Valuations

As an adviser, we take an active approach to creating, negotiating, structuring, and managing transactions with a focus on achieving a successful outcome.

Due diligence

At every stage, the advice we provide to you is objective and independent, and based on our extensive experience in M&A. Every deal comes with value drivers as well as risks, so it is important to carry out business-wide due diligence alongside considering the effect of market dynamics. Mazars understands the complexities of deals and provides the support you need to confidently transform your business.
