Mergers and Acquisitions

Mergers and Acquisitions Acquisitions and divestitures are key strategies to achieve long term corporate growth and profitability objectives. The vitality and fit of a prospective acquisition to a client’s growth objectives must be carried out from an objective (not emotional) perspective to determine:

  • Market projection, growth potential and compatibility with acquiring organization’s business plan of the prospect
  • Validation of balance sheet assets
  • Accuracy of reserve accounts, liabilities and risk management processes utilized in establishing those accounts
  • Assessment of warranty, liquidated damages, employee benefit and other long term obligations
  • Strength and accuracy of cash flow projections from current operations
  • Due Diligence surveys of ongoing projects and/or contracts
