Mergers and Acquisitions
Deloitte helps companies and investment funds in the different phases of acquiring a company or selling a business division. Its services are customized to meet the specific needs of each company, with an emphasis on an industry or sector to help define strategies, achieve objectives and identify opportunities.
Deloitte also helps with due diligence services, involving analysis of the target company’s operations and informing the buyer about possible threats and opportunities related to the structure of the transaction and its future operations.
Acquisition of companies or businesses can be the ideal strategy to accelerate growth of an organization and add value to shareholder equity. However, choosing the acquisition target improperly or not having the qualifications necessary to conduct the process can turn a large opportunity into a problem.
Deloitte assistance in acquisition processes includes multidisciplinary and integrated services that address all phases of the transaction life cycle, with support of local and international specialists in the various stages of the process, allowing identification and anticipation of issues critical to transaction success.
Deloitte consultants help define a merger and acquisition (M&A) strategy that evaluates the constantly changing scenario of the client’s industry, customers and competition to identify growth opportunities and targets aligned with the company’s strategy.
From an appropriate evaluation of the target company to financial, accounting, tax, labor, commercial and operational due diligence, through assistance with tax planning and financing option structuring, Deloitte’s consultants have experience and knowledge to help ensure a successful operation.
Integration of a recently-acquired business represents a number of challenges with costs, deadlines and risks of operating breakdowns. Deloitte has specialists for your "first day," who plan all stages of integration in detail and guide your company through implementation. It is always important to remember that completing an acquisition is not only the end of a successful transaction, but the start of the new phase of a larger and more complex company.
Deloitte has a complete set of solutions to support your company and investors in all phases of a M&A operation. Deloitte works on acquisition transactions, first by defining the transaction strategy, followed by target identification and evaluation stages, estimation of the value range of target companies for presentation of purchase offers, support in negotiating a Letter of Intent, conducting of due diligence, negotiation of the final transaction terms and support for post-merger integration.
