Mergers and Acquisitions

A business merger, or the acquisition of new assets for an existing business, is a major transaction that will affect a company for years to come. The rushed purchase of a business without properly applied due diligence or the poor management of a sales transaction can have a major financial impact.

At Anstiss & Co., we understand that the single biggest mistake made in buying or selling a business is not properly planning the transaction. Inevitably, this leads to business owners leaving more money on the table and less in their pocket. When we work with our clients to assist in the purchase or sale of a business, we go through a due diligence process designed to ensure that every question has been answered before the buyer or seller asks it. We understand that the smoother the transaction process goes, the less likelihood there is for a delay or price adjustment. We also understand that each time a potential buyer walks away from the negotiating table, the likelihood that the seller’s targeted terms will be met decreases. Our goal is to assist our clients in getting the transaction closed in as timely a manner as possible.

As a part of our business consulting services, our team of qualified experts has been successfully assisting clients through the complicated process of buying and selling businesses since 1964. By becoming students of the business being purchased or sold, we guide our clients toward sound business merger and acquisition decisions.

We possess an innate understanding of the process from both sides of the equation. Every step of the merger and acquisitions procedures undertaken by our accounting firm, from internal reviews to the completion of the transaction, is managed by our qualified team in a personalized, friendly and expeditious manner.
