Matlock Corporate Advisory is the market leader within Australasia in providing corporate advice to corporations on the divestment or acquisition of branded consumer products.

In providing such advice regarding branded products, and at times whole businesses, Matlock Corporate Advisory brings to any such transactions the following specific skills and attributes:

  • 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.
