Business acquisition

A strategic business acquisition results from a clearly defined strategic objective to strengthen one's own market position. This business acquisition may target a direct competitor, allowing the own company to grow after the acquisition by gaining access to the products, services, customers and/or market share of the acquired company. But a business outside the core business of one's own company can also be acquired, for example because of new technologies or additional competencies that offer new opportunities.

Our Corporate Finance advisors work closely with you to create an acquisition recommendation and search profile. With this thorough approach, we get to work, continuously informing, advising and guiding you through the entire acquisition process.
Our approach is based on a thorough analysis of your strategic goals and needs, striving for the best possible match between your company and potential acquisition candidates. We understand the importance of making a considered and careful choice when selecting a suitable acquisition property.

Important considerations in business acquisitions

In business acquisitions, there are essential aspects to consider

A business acquisition is a process of careful planning and strategic decision-making. Buying or selling a business is a challenging process, but we see it as an opportunity to achieve your goals. Making the right decisions is crucial when looking to acquire a business. Companies consider several criteria relevant to their industry and goals when considering a business acquisition. There are several essential aspects to consider:

  • Strategic fit: Make sure the company to be acquired is strategically aligned with your goals and plans.
  • Financial Health: Conduct a thorough audit of the company's financial situation.
  • Legal aspects: Have a thorough legal review of contracts and potential risks.
  • Customers: Examine customer base, market position and competitors.
  • Personnel: Review the workforce and assess skills, cultural compatibility and any employment obligations.
  • Valuation: Get a valuation done.

These essential aspects play an important role in making informed decisions during a business acquisition. By considering these aspects and seeking advice tailored to your needs, you will increase your chances of a successful and valuable business acquisition that aligns with your strategic objectives. We are available to support you on a variety of issues, with our comprehensive services, broad knowledge and extensive experience in Corporate Finance, Strategy, Restructuring and Interim & Governance.
