Merger and Acquisitions
M&A is a consolidation process with the key objective to create shareholder value. M&A should be the tactics to execute a strategy, but not the strategy itself. In most cases, mergers and acquisitions fail.
Our team has supported major M&A deals, both from the financial and transformation perspectives. We focus on the strategic fit, to ensure that there are clear long term objectives, and also by identifying value drivers for the stakeholders. We deliver due diligences, business analysis, risk examination, valuation analysis and information memorandums. We evaluate bids, facilitate the negotiations, support financing agreements and manage the overall transformation after the deal to ensure success.
Market review and strategic analysis
M&A’s must be strategy driven, therefore, a key challenge is to have a clear strategy and market analysis, to identify the M&A drivers, therefore understanding requirements and risks. We support major clients in an in-depth analysis, to evaluate the market space, align a strategy and define value drivers for potential M&A’s ̶ and select potential target companies.
Financing and fund raising
There are multiple options for financing deals and fundraising. A key challenge is to evaluate the options, select the right partners, negotiate and secure the partners to support the deal. Creative Management team is very experienced and has an extensive network to support financing arrangements.
Due diligence and business plan review
Due diligence are key to evaluate the potential M&A success. They must be focused not only on existing capabilities, but also in potential future value from integration. We are experienced in in-depth analysis, thoroughly reviewing the company assets, performance, legal, market, management and information systems.
Negotiating and closing a deal requires persistence, focus and a clear understanding of both parties expectations.
