At Quinn Mergers and Acquisitions, we often get asked why it is important, or necessary, to hire an expert advisor to assist with the completion of a merger or acquisition transaction. There are many reasons why engaging an experienced professional for such a critical transaction is a good idea, and in this article we will outline just a few of them.

Not only does an expert advisor bring their wealth of knowledge and experience, it can help you to save precious time and there’s a better chance of a favourable outcome due to their accurate and impartial advice and non-emotive decision making. Engaging an expert advisor for your M&A transaction is most often the right decision for you and your transaction journey.

Q: Why Hire an Expert M&A Advisor? A: They’ll Save you Time

The reality is, completing an M&A transaction is time consuming. From the time spent preparing for the market, through to contacting and liaising with prospective buyers or sellers, through to negotiating offers, preparing documents for due diligence, managing due diligence and managing the legal process, it’s not uncommon for there to be over 50 hours of work per week for months on end in order to complete a successful transaction. Often, this is time that the management team in a company should better direct to the day-to-day operation of the company, whilst leaving the intricacies of the M&A transaction to an experienced advisor. 

Q:  Why Hire an Expert M&A Advisor? A: You Get Prompt, Accurate, Impartial Advice

M&A advisors are experienced in making high value and risk strategic decisions on a day to day basis. They have the experience to know what may go wrong if certain decisions are made and can use this experience to navigate tricky decisions. Further, M&A advisors are working for you, and will ensure that all advice leads to the best possible commercial outcome for you after balancing all financial, operational and legal risks that may be in existence for a given decision.

Q:  Why Hire an Expert M&A Advisor? A: Non-Emotive Decision Making

Expert M&A advisors don’t get caught up in the emotions of making a decision during merger and acquisition transactions, even in the heat of important negotiations. M&A advisors are experts at looking at matters from a practical, commercial perspective and making decisions in this light. This makes for better transaction outcomes and cleaner transaction processes.

Q:  Why Hire an Expert M&A Advisor? A: Confidentiality and Protection

When selling, merging or buying a business, you need the strictest level of confidentiality and the protection that accompanies it. Expert M&A advisors, such as our team at Quinn M&A, are qualified and knowledgeable; keeping all the bits and pieces about your transaction confidential from competitors and relevant parties, for you and your business’ protection. 

Q:  Why Hire an Expert M&A Advisor? A: They Follow Legal Requirements
