Mergers & Acquisitions

DHG proactively helps corporate finance and management manage the complexities of an M&A transaction.

A merger or acquisition transaction proposes great opportunity as well as great risk. Nevertheless, the forthcoming value of an M&A deal propels its ongoing activity in the marketplace.

Factors that typically drive M&A transaction volume include:

  • General company reorganization
  • Calculated acquisitions by competitors
  • Attraction of U.S. businesses to foreign buyers
  • Corporate valuations based on fluctuating market conditions

DHG can help identify solutions to otherwise overlooked challenges.

As M&A tax impacts may materially affect a company’s transaction, it is important to consider the possible issues that may arise should you proceed in merging with, acquiring or disposing of a business entity. Issues may include:

  • Ordinary vs. capital gain
  • Legal status of prospective target
  • Financing structure
  • Tax attribute remainders
  • Sales taxes
  • Transaction costs
  • Filing requirements
  • Accumulated liability

Our resourceful professionals collaborate experience and knowledge to help capitalize on opportunity and mitigate risk.
