Mergers & Acquisitions
At Capital Corp Merchant Banking, our focus is to identify such companies that have the potential for significant profit improvement through a merger or acquisition. Our procedure is to provide strong incentives and equity ownership for remaining management within the target company. Our decades of experience have taught us that companies are successful in large part due to the quality of their management. Consequently, we participate as active advisors and directors, and work with management to establish realistic strategic and operational objectives.
What's Involved in a Successful Merger or Acquisition
Know What You're In For
Mergers and acquisitions are critical for the sustainable and profitable growth of corporations, even today, not only for their core business activities but also for the future value-generating activities.
With that said, it is also important to realize that on average nearly 70% of mergers and acquisitions fail to meet or exceed the forecasted expectations set forth by the involved parties.
The Importance of Due Diligence
The most important of all the necessary keys to a successful post-M&A integration is that of a well thought out and planned Pre-Merger Due Diligence. Successfully planning and initiating a merger requires sound strategies and a deep understanding of the operational, financial, legal, and cultural issues of the associated individuals and companies.
Therefore, one needs to pull together a pool of experts that represent these areas of expertise. Depending on each unique situation, a company may need to bring in external help in the form of legal counsel, valuation experts, investment bankers and accountants.
The Value of Leadership
Every transition requires the presence of strong leadership whose members will be chosen to define the tone and set a precedent for the direction and efficiency of the new entity. Importantly, these transition team leaders must be chosen from both sides of the deal.
Capital Corp Merchant Banking has been at the head of numerous successful mergers and acquisitions due to the high quality of our own leadership, combined with our skills and decades-long expertise in merchant banking. We have an in-depth understanding of what is at stake for each such transaction and work with our clients to provide optimum results and successful post-merger integration.
