If you consider a merger, an acquisition or a sale of your company it is not something you will do lightly. It is a careful process in which buyer and seller should assess that the company’s long-term strategies are aligned; company’s cultures matches and the financial performance is in accordance with expectations. We have significant experience with mergers and acquisitions throughout the Caribbean, both from a buyer and a seller perspective and are able to assist you in several ways during this process.
- We are able to advice if it is the right time to sell your company or expand through an acquisition.
- We can perform a valuation of your company or the company you are interested in. A careful valuation of your company will result in reasonable expectations during a selling process. A valuation of a potential acquisition might prevent you from overpaying.
- We can perform a (vendor or buyer) due diligence procedure in which it is determined if the financials of your company or from the company that is being acquired are correct. A vendor due diligence might protect you from discovery of errors in your financials by a potential purchaser, which might lower the price. A buyer due diligence might protect you from buying a company of which the financial information received is not completely accurate or complete.
- We can assist you with the further selling process, by identifying potential interested parties, compile a teaser and an information memorandum, prepare a data room and assist you during negotiations.
During our assistance we will work closely together with your legal council in relation to all the legal aspects involved with the deal on hand. Our tax advisors can prepare the fiscal structure in which the transaction needs to take place in order for you to maximize the benefits obtained from the sale or acquisition. In relation to the valuation of any company we work closely together with a specialist firm in the Netherlands which provides us with sufficient resources to valuate any company responsibly.
