Accelerated Mergers & Acquisitions

Accelerated Mergers & Acquisitions

Accelerated Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) or distressed Mergers and Acquisitions happen where the availability of liquid assets to a company become an issue and it is vital to preserve their value.

The Quantuma team are frequently called upon to provide ongoing advice to companies who are in financial distress.  The distress may take many forms but ultimately, it places significant pressure on management and tests the ability of the business to keep performing.

One of the solutions we offer in distressed circumstances, is the marketing of and seeking to sell a business via a sale of the Company’s shares, returning value to the shareholders and protecting the ongoing business.  Unlike a normal corporate finance transaction, the period from instruction to conclusion may take just a matter of a few days, because outside of that short time frame, there may be factors such as cash flow which mean that the Company cannot continue. However, each sales process is tailored to ensure that the optimum outcome is achieved.

Throughout the process, our team will provide ongoing advice to management, to ensure that all Directors are aware of their ongoing duties and obligations, and are not in breach of those responsibilities whilst the Company is in financial distress. Management of each stakeholders’ interest is fundamental to the success or failure of a disposal and Quantuma is uniquely placed to be able to act fast but commit sufficient resource to conclude the smallest transactions to multi-million pound disposals in distressed circumstances.
