We provide acquisition advice to companies and individuals. This could be as simple as research of purchase opportunities or a full acquisition process where we also act as a buyer’s agent.
– research acquisition opportunities providing a list of possibility companies together with key information on each
– contact target companies to see if they would consider an offer
– negotiate with target companies to buy the company
– assist with due diligence
The most formal representation is where we are engaged as a buyer’s agent. A buyer’s agent acts on behalf of the buyer, analyses business value, investigates business risks and analyses the accounts, assists with negotiations and prepares a sales and purchase agreement. This is common overseas (especially the US) and is simply the reverse of the normal New Zealand arrangement of being a seller’s agent.
