Typical Steps of an M&A Transaction

M&A transactions involving small and medium enterprises can be particularly diverse. Still, there are several important steps, which are identical in most cases:

  • Market research and selection of target companies
  • Contacting and approaching the management/ownership of the target company
  • Signing of a non-disclosure agreement (NDA)
  • Signing of a letter of intent
  • Due diligence: Thorough economic examination of the target company
  • Structuring of the transaction based on the due diligence examination
  • Valuation and price negotiation
  • Contract conclusion
  • When necessary: Registering and getting approval from a competition regulator
  • Transfer of ownership and closing / payment handling

An M&A transition is not just about its financial and legal components. Cultural differences can play an important role in determining the success of your acquisition, even after the entire transaction is over.

Company Takeovers – A Growing Market in Japan

It is becoming more and more common for European businesses to acquire companies in Japan. The reasons for that can be multifaceted:

  • Increased proximity to Japanese customers through an already well-established local company
  • Can respond more quickly to demands from local customers
  • Better marketing made possible through its own production
  • Acquisition of an agency, importer or competitor strengthens a company’s position within the market

Even small and medium enterprises can provide you with such advantages of an acquisition.
