Corporate Finance

We help our clients plan, execute and integrate transactions using our geographic coverage and resources to execute deals globally.

Our dedicated corporate finance teams provide specialist and independent advice, including financial & commercial due diligence, M&A advisory, financial modeling and valuation. Our international presence places us in a unique position to manage both local and cross-border assignments for clients.

Financial & commercial due diligence reviews

We complete financial reviews and/or commercial due diligence to assist investors or lenders to evaluate, plan and manage transactions such as acquisitions, divestments or strategic alliances. Whether you need due diligence, an accountant’s report or pre-lending reviews, our director-led teams recognise the different commercial needs of our clients and provide tailored issue-led reports with practical advice and recommendations on each transaction.

We assist you in making the right investment decisions, by keeping you fully informed of any issues and using specialist teams that add value, making the process as simple as possible for you.

We also help identify potential issues that might require re-negotiation of the deal structure or terms of a purchase agreement, placing particular emphasis on areas that are not substantiated. This is particularly true on cross-border transactions, in which we can utilise specialist teams across our network of over 1,400 offices in more than 155 countries, providing local intelligence in any target locations, coordinated by our team in Hong Kong.

Mergers & acquisitions advisory

Our Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) advisory team acts as the main advisor on acquisitions or disposals, identifying the right solutions and maximising value through confidential and closely-managed sales processes.

Our teams will partner with you in leading the full process, from identifying investment or disposal opportunities, sourcing target investors, advising on valuation and leading deal negotiations through to completion.

We assist corporates, private equity funds, family offices and other financial investors in sourcing investment opportunities, and through BDO’s international reach, we are able to source and execute deals in almost any jurisdiction globally.

Business valuation

Our valuation services include business & share valuations, financial instruments, intangible asset valuations & purchase price allocations and expert witness & litigation support valuations.

Our well planned and commercial approach includes clearly documented value conclusions, assisting with planning and investment strategy decisions.

A valuation is so much more than just a number. To prepare an accurate valuation, good knowledge of the subject being valued, applicable accounting or regulatory standards, technical knowhow and commercial experience are required, which is what our experienced valuation professionals bring to each engagement.
