Mergers & acquisitions
With a focus on financial services, our M&A experts ensure you have improved transaction certainty when you are preparing for a sale, buying or selling a company, embarking on a joint venture or concluding cross-border transactions.
The M&A advisory services offered by BDO cover everything from the transaction preparation stage, valuation, the creation of relevant sales documentation (e.g. a fact book and information memorandum), the identification of suitable target companies and/or investors and the subsequent process of approaching them, the arrangement of due diligence and support for contract negotiations all the way to the final conclusion of the transaction. Every step of the way, the specific (regulatory) requirements of companies within the financial services sector are taken into account as a matter of priority.
As part of the BDO international network for Financial Services M&A, the German BDO Financial Services team can draw on expertise across all relevant markets, including the core global and European markets for banks, asset managers and insurance providers.
This level of interdisciplinary services within our M&A advisory services means – most importantly – that experts in due diligence and tax or legal advice, for example, can be directly involved in the project without much notice (depending on the client's requirements for the project in question). Our way of working guarantees that the transaction process is efficient, enabling response times to be quick and allowing our clients added flexibility.
