Our experience is that up to 5% of the headline deal value can be gained or lost purely through the approach to the cash accounting aspects of the Sale and Purchase Agreement.
Working alongside the core diligence team, our SPA specialists provide expert advice on the cash accounting implications of transaction agreements being negotiated, including purchase price adjustment mechanisms and completion accounts policies.
Drawing on our experience of transaction disputes, and working closely with your legal advisers, we can assist you in developing contractual solutions to accounting or commercial issues identified.
Our Sale & Purchase Agreement specialists can help you:
By working hand in hand with the diligence team, we are close to the numbers and financial dynamics of the business early in the process and so are ideally placed to pick up critical pricing issues at a time when they can be converted into real value.
We are the only Big Four firm to have experienced, dedicated SPA specialists embedded within its M&A Transaction Services offering.
