In a booming mergers and acquisitions market any deal can look attractive, but relatively few will deliver value. To identify the best opportunities and achieve a good deal requires better industry insight than the competition and strong execution skills.

Arthur D.Little’s Corporate Finance Advisory Services (CFAS) team provides independent, impartial and expert advice to ensure the good deals get done. We achieve this by leveraging our firm’s global strengths in dealing with strategy and organisational issues in technology-intensive industries.

How we can help

We can support you throughout the transaction process, including:

  • helping prepare robust business plans that explain the full potential of a business
  • undertaking business plan reviews (commercial due diligence and, in specific areas, technical due diligence in) for vendors and acquirers.

We typically work with (rather than as) the investment banking corporate finance advisor to maximise our clients’ prospects for success.

Combined expertise

The CFAS team offers specific technical expertise in corporate finance areas including:

  • valuation (for commercial and accounting purposes)
  • strategic financial modelling
  • acquisition targeting.

Following a successful transaction, we can co-ordinate support from within Arthur D. Little to ensure effective post-merger integration, to identify and realise synergies and to release working capital. With our industry-specific knowledge and business planning skills we are also well placed to help financiers identify businesses’ defensible cash-generation potential in restructuring situations.
