Mergers & Acquisitions

​​Merlin’s M&A practice helps client organisations manage the many complex moving parts of bringing businesses together through mergers and acquisitions or carving them out through separations and divestitures.

Merlin partners with client organisations, often working alongside other professional advisors, throughout the entire M&A deal life-cycle.

From conceiving strategy to selecting the right partner. From conducting thorough due diligence to closing the deal. From beginning-to-end, we align our services to address the specific goals of the transaction, integration, and separation needs, all with the aim of generating value for our clients.

Our Extended Due Diligence – the scope of which can extend to Operational, Financial, People, IT, Sales and Marketing areas – de-risks many of the complexities which go “beyond the numbers” covered in standard Financial Due Diligence.

We also have a real focus on:

  • Transaction Readiness,
  • Transaction Execution, and
  • Post-M&A Integration.
