Business acquisitions


The goal of the service is to support our clients in the process of business takeover, trademark takeover or acquisition of stocks, shares and chosen assets of organised parts of enterprises.

The service includes Grant Thornton advisers seeking out target entities that would meet the client’s acquisition criteria and which, once taken over, would contribute to increasing the value of their business through realised synergies. An adequate specification of the synergies sought that are consistent with the client’s development strategy is key to a successful transaction.

The service covers the following stages:

  • Determining the goals and criteria of the transaction
  • Drawing up a report presenting information on the entities meeting acquisition criteria
  • Contacting the entities chosen by the Management Board
  • Valuation of the chosen business
  • Due diligence
  • Developing the business and tax structure of the transaction
  • Closing the deal
  • Post-merger integration

The competence of Grant Thornton advisers and our familiarity with businesses operating in international markets result in an effective and comprehensive service throughout the process. Due to our membership in the Grant Thornton International network, with M&A teams in more than 40 countries worldwide, our advisers are able to actively search for acquisition targets in all the important economies worldwide and in emerging markets.
