Mergers and Acquisitions

Experienced and Well-Connected To Shepherd Your Purchase Or Sale

Completing a successful merger or acquisition requires strategic thinking and decision making, and a thorough understanding of the expected outcome.

The professionals at DeJoy, Knauf & Blood are experienced in both sales and purchases of businesses, providing objective counsel and hands-on expertise in negotiating and structuring transactions. Our high-quality reputation is built on extensive industry knowledge and our direct access to many key decision makers among strategic buyers and private equity groups. 

Developing a thorough strategy before launching a merger or acquisition effort is critical. In addition to handling accounting issues, TeamDKB performs the due diligence necessary to support sound decision-making and minimize any surprises later. We assess the financial health of the company, the anticipated sustainability of future performance, and the overall risks that the transaction may pose.

Buy-Side Transactions

We work with clients to focus their acquisition search and clarify objectives. We deepen their understanding of a proposed investment opportunity by studying value drivers such as cash flow, revenue and profitability trends, working-capital positions, accounting procedures and tax-exposure controls. And, should deal breakers lurk, we strive to pinpoint them early.

Sell-Side Transactions

To ensure a full understanding of the expected outcome, we assist in evaluating options for selling or recapitalizing. We couple our industry and market knowledge with an in-depth exploration into a given client’s business. We work with clients on competitive positioning, identifying opportunities to bolster value and improve margins and cash flows.
