Transaction Support

We advise foreign companies making acquisitions in Japan or seeking to sell a Japanese entity. We also advise Japanese companies in assessing targets overseas and preparing for sale to foreign investors.

Whether you are buying or selling a business, we will work closely with you to understand the main drivers behind your deal, your strategic plan going forward and the associated risks to ensure the scope of work is robust and meets the needs of your board, your financial backers or potential acquirer. Typically our report will focus on a critical analysis of the historical and projected financial performance, including:

  • Identifying potential ‘deal breakers’. 
  • Highlighting issues which may lead to a purchase price adjustment.
  • Understanding the working capital requirement of the business.
