Mergers & Acquisitions



Acquisition of companies, mergers or takeover of business areas

Mergers or acquisitions as well as the purchase of individual business areas can be attractive ways to enter the Korean market and establish your company locally. The local partner is usually well-experienced and often comes with the additional advantage of a local network, which can be immensely valuable.

Mergers and acquisitions may be ways to entering a new market, but they can also be a tool of market expansion, by either further strengthening and expanding your own business or by adding new business areas to it.

However, things do not always go as planned and you might find yourself in a situation where it could be the best to sell the company in Korea in order to keep the withdrawal costs as low as possible. Nowak & Partner actively supports you in this endeavor as well.

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.


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.
