Mergers & Acquisitions


Acquiring a business can provide a quick and cost-effective and fast way to grow your organisation or make strategic gains, but it also represents one of the biggest risk factors a business can face both in terms of the acquisition and the integration.  Such a purchase can facilitate rapid entry into a new market or region and bring key personnel, brand equity, new technology or new customers.

ibv understands the challenges that an acquisition brings and the post deal integration issues. Having been involved in many acquisitions as advisors and business owners, we really do bring a different perspective to the challenges faced.
