Mergers & Acquisitions
One of the most efficient forms of achieving business growth is through the acquisition of existing businesses. Mergers and Acquisitions is a glamorous phrase that simply means buying and selling of businesses. One of the most effective forms of achieving business growth is through the acquisition of existing businesses. For example, if a large bottling company would like to expand its market share, one way to do it is through buying up other players in the market. If a small retailer would like to become an industry power, it can achieve this by merging with other retailers to form an industry leader.
If a company is experiencing financial difficulties, it can merge with another company to get a new capital injection. If a large business is having unproﬁtable divisions, it can sell off these non-performing divisions to increase proﬁtability.
Big business today must constantly re-invent itself in the ever changing market to remain competitive. Business leaders understand this clearly and so should their professional legal advisors. Because business growth and restructuring is important to nearly every business, it has become one of our core areas of specialisation.
