Strong companies will act to buy other companies to create a more competitive, cost-efficient company.
The purchase is called an acquisition when one company takes over another and clearly establishes itself as the new owner.
A merger happens when two firms, of about the same size, agree to go forward as a single new company rather than remain separately owned and operated.
A divestiture corresponds to the sale, liquidation, or spinoff of a corporate division or subsidiary.
We conduct due diligence audits before mergers, acquisitions and divestitures.
