We devise and execute innovative, customized solutions to our clients' most challenging issues. The M&A team excels in domestic and international transactions including acquisitions, divestitures, mergers, joint ventures, corporate restructurings, recapitalizations, spin-offs, exchange offers, leveraged buyouts and takeover defenses as well as shareholder relations. SAS Finance Group applies its extensive experience with global industries, regions and banking products to meet our clients' short- and long-term strategic objectives.
We have represented strategic and financial buyers who want to expand a subsidiary or platform, and companies seeking to acquire equities in Ghana than any other investment bank. We work closely with multinational corporations, private companies, and private equity firms seeking to acquire companies in Ghana. Many acquisition candidates are closely held and thus difficult to identify and analyze objectively; however, we maintain extensive networks of industry relationships and foreign direct investors and utilize information resources that enable us to identify those companies best able to meet the buyer’s specific criteria.
Corporate Divestitures and Sale Engagements
Our clients include companies disposing of non-core operations, companies that require assistance in evaluating and negotiating offers from potential acquirers, and shareholders desiring to access liquidity or to diversify their wealth. SAS brings to its clients the depth and diversity of experience gained in successfully closing numerous transactions across a wide range of industries.
For each client we serve, SAS conducts pre-sale due diligence to gain a thorough, perceptive view of a company’s operating performance, and to maximize intrinsic value and future potential, and provide advice on sale versus other alternatives (such as selling a partial interest).
Given the complexities of corporate divestitures, finding the optimal buyer (whether strategic or financial) is the most challenging and critical aspect of divestiture transactions. SAS draws on its extensive network and proprietary investor database to identify and qualify the most suitable strategic and financial buyers across the world, implement a sophisticated campaign to market the client’s businesses to these buyers, and finally represent the client during due diligence, transaction structuring and negotiations.
For some businesses, a strategic alliance or joint venture is the optimal way to increase value. A strategic partnership, separate from mergers and acquisition, offers opportunities to drive value, while sharing the costs and risks with another party. SAS provides clients with comprehensive guidance in the areas of strategy, negotiation, structure, documentation, termination, and other complex joint venture arrangements.
