The M&A advisory services provided by Allied Inc. include those listed below. They can be tailored to the client’s needs and phase of transaction. In addition to normal services for M&A transactions between independent companies, Allied Inc. also provides services for management buyouts, business succession, and M&As for facilitating restructuring and business concentration within intra-group companies. Furthermore, by utilizing expertise in M&A, Allied Inc. provides advice on developing strategies against hostile approaches.
After we analyze the client’s industry market and competitive environment, we prepare a chart of the client’s relative position on the basis of strategic and financial factors. Factors affecting competitive advantage are defined by analyzing this information, and excesses and deficiencies in the client’s management resources are delineated.
If M&A is determined to be an ideal solution to alleviate excesses/deficiencies in management resources and strengthen competitive advantages, Allied Inc. assists in the selection of candidates and develops an optimal structure on the basis of operational and financial factors.
Allied Inc. develops tactical plans for negotiation and establishes a communication line with the candidate by using the provisionary corporate valuation as a baseline. We prepare the schedule of actions to be taken during the closing of the transaction in addition to supervising all processes to ensure success.
Allied Inc. determines the scope of investigation for due diligence and identifies fields of data to be covered. We also coordinate the actual process of due diligence with a view to achieving maximum results with minimum expenditure.
On the basis of the results of the due diligence, Allied Inc. refines the valuation of the target company by assessing the management strategy and applying appropriate financial theories and prepares for price negotiation with the target company. Also, if needed, we assist in the preparation of reports to government authorities.
The final agreement is carefully reviewed to ensure that any discrepancies in understanding between both parties are fully resolved and all the agreed upon items and changes are appropriately worded, minimizing the risk factors. The closing steps are fine tuned to ensure the successful completion of the transaction.
Depending on the clients’ needs, additional services (at additional fees) are provided.
