There are many reasons why you might be interested in an acquisition. Perhaps you want to scale quickly and combining with a competitor might be the approach? Or maybe you want to access a new part of the market or expand into a new geography or tap into a new customer base?
Not all acquisitions are the result of careful strategic planning, they can be more opportunistic in nature or form part of a defensive move.
In acquisitions, as with all commercial transactions, the principle of caveat emptor, meaning “let the buyer beware” applies, so it’s vitally important to go into a potential acquisition with your eyes wide open and understand due diligence intricacies.
This webinar will cover the following topics:
- Financial due diligence
- Working capital and net debt adjustments
- Tax due diligence
- Transaction structuring considerations
