Mergers and Acquisitions
The Firm Can Work on Mergers and Acquisitions and Competitive Strategy Development
Once a company reaches a certain point in its evolution, it may be ready to look at acquiring businesses or assets, divesting of non-core elements and/or merging with another firm. Mergers and acquisitions may also require a company to raise capital, from time to time. However, when looking to buy assets or a business, it can be tricky to value the opportunity simply by looking at financial statements. Not only must a valuation be based on past and current financials, but assumptions must also be made about the future. Having an experienced consultant look at a potential transaction and help determine its value can improve the overall outcome of the process. Meadowbank can assist with either asset-driven or share-based transactions.
A clear competitive strategy and its careful development are imperative for a business to be successful. A strategy, with consistent mission, vision and value statements, is an outline of how a company will meet its goals over time. And there are many functions to consider when implementing a corporate strategy, such as research and development, sales and marketing, as well as corporate finance. Complicating matters even further, operating in the context of the ever-changing financial markets will also determine whether certain tactics should be implemented, amended, or discarded. Working with an experienced professional in corporate strategy will help this process. Whether you are in a duopoly, or a price-taker in a highly competitive market, Meadowbank is here to help you stay one step ahead of your peers.
