How do I identify and approach the right acquisition target?

  • How much should I pay?
  • What are the risks and how do I deal with them?

Making an acquisition can be one of the most effective ways of growing your business, however most businesses do not have the capacity to carry out the necessary research, manage the acquisition process and continue the smooth running of the existing business. This is where we can help.

At MHA Moore and Smalley we can assist in making acquisitions work for you. We can assist you in developing your acquisition strategy, researching and identifying potential targets, negotiating with potential vendors, raising finance to complete the deal, advising on the best structure and minimising tax liabilities, whilst managing the legal and due diligence process to ensure that any risks are identified and dealt with appropriately.

We have an excellent network of contacts including other advisers, potential vendors and sources of capital as well as legal experts. MHA Moore and Smalley have a dedicated corporate finance team and are ideally equipped to steer your acquisition to a successful completion.
