M&A deal completion services
Multinational companies are facing an ever-growing number of new regulations and are required to meet their obligations in each jurisdiction, while maintaining a global overview of their company’s compliance situation.
From set-up to liquidation, our professionals take care of recurring filings, routine corporate changes and retrieval of corporate documents from official registries, such as certificates of good standing.
We specialise in working with corporates, private equity operating partners and transaction advisors to get deals over the line when remote local compliance issues – we call them ‘long poles ’ – get in the way.
We provide stability for the deal itself – and stability for ongoing operations.
What looks straightforward from a global perspective in terms of your target operating model, can look very different on the ground if you haven’t asked the questions that never seem to be high enough on the deal agenda – until everything is down to the wire.
- How is the target operating model going to work?
- How long will it take to set up in every country?
- How much is it going to cost?
- And did you factor all this into the evaluation?
What surprises many clients, time after time, is that you just can’t copy what the seller is doing in each country and leave it there.
Just transferring workforces to your new entities can be extremely intricate in many territories.
Then there’s the choreography of incorporation and entity activation. Sometimes it’s sequential, sometimes not. Sometimes tax registrations are combined with the social security elements and sometimes they are separate. Who tracks those requirements at federal and provincial –levels so entity activation can be expedited? The permutations of operating compliance worldwide can be headache-inducing if you aren’t used to it.
If you get it wrong, you’ve lost time. You might lose the confidence of employees and regulators. You might dent your revenue model. You might lose the deal.
