It’s been quite the month for transactions with BridgePoint Group clients getting active on both sides of the merger and acquisition trail.
In this particular transaction, our client*, the Australian subsidiary of a foreign owned company, snapped up one of its customers in a vertical integration that has clear strategic value beyond the obvious margin play.
Our BridgePoint Group accounting team designed and undertook due diligence on the target. They provided advice regarding tax outcomes and project managed the entire process in the absence of our US-based client. Meanwhile, BridgePoint Group Legal undertook the legal due diligence, provided commercial input into negotiations, drafted all transaction documentation and managed completion tasks.
We have spoken before about the power of combining the accounting and legal teams in transactions like this and here is another example. In fact, so successfully and professionally was this project managed that the vendor was moved to provide this review after clicking the gold star on Louise Cottee’s email:
Louise and Russell gave professional service of the highest order and I have no hesitation in recommending them and Neil’s and the Company’s services. I think you’ll agree that’s quite something when the party on the other side of the transaction commends us so. Well done to all involved.
If you are contemplating a transaction of your own, or perhaps just wondering if you should be, please call us on 1300 656 141 for a confidential discussion. Or simply start the conversation with your usual contact at BridgePoint Group.
