We advise our clients on acquisitions, divestments, JVs and other forms of strategic alliances. We provide corporate finance services in situations involving restructuring, debt advisory and business valuation. We also undertake strategic assessment studies to help our clients understand where the best opportunities for strategic investments might lie.

M&A Advisory

BDA’s core activity is to identify, unlock and execute acquisitions, JVs, divestments and commercial alliances involving Asia

Since 1996 we have advised numerous clients, both Western and Asian, on all phases of mid-sized international cross-border transactions including initiation of contacts, evaluation, negotiations, management of due diligence and final structuring. BDA’s professionals have developed extensive experience in handling the unique issues that arise from cross-border, cross-cultural M&A, such as:

  •  Cultural sensitivities to the role of M&A in strategic development
  •  Managing an M&A process in more than one language and across distant time zones
  • Divergent approaches to valuation
  • Managing due diligence in environments of sub-optimal transparency
  • Educating clients entering an unfamiliar jurisdiction
  • “Coaching” counterparties who have limited M&A experience
  • Ensuring that dedicated, senior “on the ground” resources are available at all times to our client

The strategic and financial value that can be unlocked through business combinations that bridge Asia and the West is often compelling. But any proposed transaction requires an experienced, independent advisory team which understands these divergent markets and the challenges faced in achieving a successful outcome.

BDA is independent and is able to advise clients free from other commercial pressures and conflicts potentially faced by multi-product investment banks.
