Mergers & Acquisitions

 

 

Acquisition of companies, mergers or takeover of business areas

A merger or acquisition as well as the purchase of individual business units can be an attractive way to enter the Korean market and establish yourself locally. The local partner is usually tried and tested and often brings the additional valuable advantage of a local network.

In addition to entering the market, a merger or acquisition can be a way of expanding the market for your company, by either further strengthening and expanding your own business or by adding new business areas.

However, things do not always go as planned and you might find yourself in a situation when it is best to sell the company in Korea in order to keep the withdrawal as inexpensive as possible. Nowak & Partner also actively supports you in this endeavor.

Your goals

  • You would like to acquire an existing sales network through company acquisition in order to gain easier market access.
  • You intend to take over a company with strong technology to expand or supplement your product range.
  • You are committed to taking over a "strategic market share" in order to expand your position in the market.
  • You want to take over your local partner (distributor or agent) who faces difficulties within a business succession.
  • You decided to withdraw from the Korean market and prefer to sell the company rather than closing the business with additional costs. 

Our service

 

Nowak & Partner offers you individual support for your M&A projects.

Beginning with the research on potential targets (or possible buyers) and the preparation of background information, to addressing the targets (or buyers) and accompanying or conducting the negotiations.

At the same time, Nowak & Partner offers a wide range of project management services and can (if required) coordinate all stakeholders, including tax advisors, lawyers and the authorities.

After successfully completing your M&A project, Nowak & Partner can offer you further services dedicated to the incorporation of the acquired entity into the existing company structure: from management and personnel consulting to the integration of IT and EDP systems.

Solution

Nowak & Partner supports you holistically in your project and does not only focus on a single part of the M&A process, which is often underestimated in terms of its complexity.

From the stage of researching and identifying targets or potential buyers we take our customer's needs into account. In the course of a benchmark audit we are able to identify strengths, weaknesses and potential obstacles at an early stage.

In addition, we support you, in cooperation with our trusted partner companies, with financial and legal due diligence, as well as with the conduct of negotiations. We are happy to help you until the target is subsequently integrated into your corporate network and always respond in your interest to the individual needs of the parties.

It is our experience that the one-stop coordination from an experienced agent on-site as well as keeping close contact with all stakeholders involved significantly reduces the time required for the process. It also increases the chances of success for the entire project.

We are looking forward to your inquiry and would be happy to provide you with confidential consultation without any obligation on your part.
