A merger or acquisition is not only a technically complex procedure, there’s a lot more to it. The emotions, the negotiations, trying to gain confidence and be on its receiving end - it all requires the utmost concentration and effort. At the same time, day-to-day business has got to keep ticking on, you’ve got to work out a strategy to maintain social harmony and so on: ‘I would rather leave the legal hassle - pardon me for calling it that - to the specialists.’ Understandable. After all, it’s not every day that you are engaged in an acquisition, merger or demerger, the experts at BDO are. Take advantage of their know-how and expertise.
The acquisition, merger or demerger of a company is an intensive and extremely complex process. And of course, it’s not limited to the legal aspect. The legal component often goes hand in hand with tax and financial regulations, obligations and formalities. That’s knowledge we also have in-house. Our legal experts enjoy direct contact with the tax consultants and corporate finance adviser colleagues, and with your own accountant, registered auditor or other partners. The more expertise and insights, the better. Every solution is the product of solid teamwork: pragmatic, accurate, and results-oriented.
