Transaction services

Throughout the life of many companies, opportunities arise for both acquisitions and divestments. To obtain maximum value from these, it is important to get both the strategy and execution right.

Ferrier Hodgson’s transaction advisory team take the knowledge and experience of dealing with distressed situations to provide a unique perspective when looking at new transactions to add value to a business. Our team advise companies directly, or work seamlessly with other advisers such as investment bank teams to provide an alternative viewpoint in understanding the potential issues surrounding an acquisition or divestment.

Business valuations can be critical in determining what to pay for a business or what to expect if you are selling a business. Our valuations experts form part of the transaction advisory team to provide technically sound methodologies and an objective mindset.

To support transactions, Ferrier Hodgson has developed a world class electronic data room – DealDocs. Cutting edge security features provides a high level of confidence for buyers, investors and sellers during a due diligence process.

A search of the Australian Personal Property Security Register (PPSR) provides information about security interests, which is necessary for any transaction, whether it is a single asset or a whole of business transaction. Our app, SecuriSearch, is a cost effective and easy way to undertake a PPSR search.

An important milestone in a company’s development is when it seeks new funding or looks to change funding arrangements. Our pre-lend reviews provide insight and objective assessments for both companies and their financiers in relation to the company’s strategy, market conditions and financial projections.
