Australasia in providing corporate advice to corporations
on the divestment or acquisition of branded consumer products.
In providing such advice regarding branded products, and

to any such transactions the following specific skills and
A proven procedure as to divestment
or acquisition, including qualitative research as to
sourcing vendors or purchasers, and in the case of divestment,
an Information Memorandum in a standardized form that
is easy to adjust on a client by client basis. Our style
of Information Memorandum is widely accepted and recognized
by corporate recipients as being presented in an excellent
format, and provides prospective purchasers with what
they want and need to know (whilst still protecting
the vendor's proprietary interests).
Various negotiating, strategy
and tactical skills throughout the entire procedure
through to end completion (including contract negotiations).
Analytical skills in assisting
MCA's clients with the internal valuation function for
board and/or parent approval purposes.
A pragmatic and realistic approach
as to what is an appropriate range of value for the
transaction to proceed, which is established in the
case of a vendor before any sale process is undertaken,
and in the case of an acquirer, prior to any indicative
offer being made.
Extensive experience and skills
in assisting its clients as either the vendor or purchaser
in conducting on their behalf, a due diligence exercise.
It is also quite often the case
that MCA has an established contact with the directorship
or senior management of either the prospective purchasers
(when acting for the vendor) or vendor (when acting
for the purchaser) involved in the proposed transactions,
due to the substantial and varied corporate contact
base MCA has across most industries, which encompasses
over 1,000 companies within Australasia and overseas.
This often facilitates a more informed, considered and
reliable response from the particular parties approached.
