M&A and Transaction Advisory Services

Driving superior outcomes from start to finish

Insight-driven M&A and Transaction Advisory Services

No two M&A transactions are the same. The definition of success varies from one deal to another based on the buyers’ and sellers’ strategic objectives and where an investor resides in the capital structure: corporate and private equity investors as well as secured and unsecured lender parties seek different information in managing risks and rewards. At the same time, transaction timelines are shorter than ever — bringing new urgency to the essential process of identifying and analyzing financial, operational, tax, regulatory, and other related risks and opportunities, then translating this information into actionable insights and timely results. 

Every client engagement begins with an in-depth exploratory phase during which our dedicated deal advisory teams develop a foundational understanding of the proposed transaction, the investment thesis and then tailor our services to meet your needs and strategic objectives.  

Our client engagements are partner-led, bringing you dedicated deal teams powered by the deep experience of BDO professionals in disciplines such as public accounting, valuation, investment banking and management consulting, along with the insights they’ve gained through experience in a range of industries.  

Further, our deal advisory services are enhanced by our proprietary deals site — a data-model-based analysis tool that increases accuracy and efficiency in financial analysis and modeling, even in highly complex transactions. These capabilities help us identify and address financial, tax and operational issues before they become deal disruptors.

Our partnership with BDO was foundational to our highly successful transaction. BDO’s advisors were diligent in testing and quantifying our own assumptions about the strength of our financial position and in assisting in the preparation of materials that were instrumental in demonstrating our value. I’m absolutely certain that we would not have achieved a similar outcome without BDO’s expertise, and I’m grateful to the many BDO professionals who worked tirelessly to help ensure our success.
