M&A Advisory and Consulting

The ultimate goal of a company that wishes to pursue M&A is not the execution of M&A itself but the sustainable growth that follows it. Further, some clients that seek consultation may need to acquire external resources through M&A.
Normally, however, companies that offer “M&A advisory” specializes in M&A implementation, and those offering “reorganization consulting” specialize in consultation work. As such, most M&A advisory company and consulting firms are unable to fulfill the needs of clients who wish to both implement M&A and receive consultation.
Our alliance department offers Hybrid M&A Service which simultaneously provides (1) M&A advisory and (2) reorganization consultation to support a company’s sustainable growth following an M&A implementation.
