Why do you need M&A insurance?
Mergers & acquisitions advice or insurance advice to a business owner would be different yet essentially lead to the same end. We are here to help guide you every step of they way.
From all sides any business owner should prepare their business for sale. A health check on the business if you like. This will include the basics such as ensuring that the business is financially performing to maximise value, internal management structures are in play working to grow the business, through to client contracts, leases etc. are all up to date. This provides the best possible viewpoint to any potential acquirer and therefore protects the enterprise value.
The same can be said from an insurance perspective. Ensuring that the business has all necessary policies, warranties and indemnities, D&O (director and officers) where required, keyman or shareholder protection in place, could protect the value of a transaction. Thus, ensuring that no unnecessary risks could be viewed by an acquirer as an opportunity to price chip the enterprise value.
