Mergers and Acquisitions Advisory Services

  • Felix Lessambo


Besides underwriting, extending various loans (mortgages, car loans, credit cards, etc.), foreign exchange deals and trading in derivatives, banks are greatly involved in merger and acquisition (M&A) advisory services. The closeness that banks have with their clients provides the opportunity for many to accompany their client in any business endeavors they engage in. M&As constitute an integral part of many organizations’ long-range growth strategy. Companies merge or acquire others in order to create or add value to their businesses. The benefits resulting from M&As are referred to as “synergies or efficiencies”, that is, the combined value of the businesses involved is greater than the sum of each business’ value when operating individually. Revenue enhancement, cost reduction, lowering taxes, and lowering cost of capital are among the most sought-after benefits.
