When clients wish to acquire an overseas or cross-border company, they rely on Canec’s proven process to get the best results

Our clients value our efficient, step-by-step methodology, which includes:

The Approach

  • Leveraging our extensive industry databases and networks to help clients fine-tune their acquisition criteria and identify targets.
  • Providing clients with a carefully researched long list of target profiles, and assisting clients in developing a shortlist of ideal matches.
  • Approaching owners of shortlisted companies on an anonymous basis to collect further information
  • Facilitating both introductory meetings with desired targets and subsequent follow-up.

The Negotiations

  • Drafting Non-Disclosure Agreements and other necessary documentation.
  • Anticipating potential issues by staying in close touch with the target’s owners.
  • Assisting clients through the valuation of the target, the structuring of a potential deal and negotiation phases.

The Closing

  • Continuing the momentum by helping draft formal preliminary offers and letters of intent.
  • Coordinating our clients’ other technical experts (lawyers, accountants, bankers, etc.) during due diligence.
  • Providing advice until the conclusion of the transaction, and assisting in the closing.
