Mergers and acquisitions

Drawn by Australia’s opportunity and potential, Australian mid-market businesses are attracting both local and international parties for acquisition opportunities.
Demand for dealmaking

Australia is a strong investment destination for global dealmakers that are drawn to the country’s robust economy, stable fundamentals, dynamic industries and links to key markets across the Asia Pacific and around the world. Combined with lower valuations relative to other markets, there are constant opportunities for domestic and international parties to capitalise on the strong businesses operating in Australia’s mid-market.

Beyond favourable fundamentals, a successful transaction is often a key factor in the next stage of business growth. Whether your goal is expansion, higher profitability, diversification or increased market share, our advisors can help you achieve your business objectives while minimising the associated transaction risks.
