Mergers & acquisitions

Mergers and acquisitions are a bit like arranged marriages. They look great on paper, but when the two sides really get to know each other, sometimes conflicting agendas, skeletons in the closet and failures to communicate can send the whole thing down in flames.

RoseRyan can help you avoid getting left at the altar—no matter which side of the deal you’re on. For acquiring companies, we take due diligence beyond financial statements, pinpointing trouble spots that spreadsheets often hide. We also appreciate the need for speed—a shifting market can change everyone’s priorities.

For companies being acquired, we make sure the document laundry list is checked off—completely, accurately and on time—and that financial statements show your business in its best possible light.

We understand the crucial human elements of M&A success. Sometimes one side doesn’t get the other’s motives, or one surprise too many erodes trust. We’ve played the heavy in merger deals so that the partners could stay on friendly terms, and guided clients through tricky integrations by reconciling different standards and processes.

There’s no substitute for seen-it-all M&A experience—and with RoseRyan gurus, you have it on call. Our services include:

  • Due diligence
  • Acquisition analysis
  • Document preparation
  • Coordination between deal partners and third parties, such as legal counsel, auditors and valuation firms
  • Purchase accounting and post-transaction accounting
  • Post-merger accounting integration

From the mission impossible files: Find out how RoseRyan helped a biotech company close the books for itself and its two newly acquired companies in just 10 days in this project profile.

The consultant who came on as CFO took only two days to understand complex issues and a lot of moving parts. He knew exactly what we needed to do. Then he quickly created a plan so we could actively start selling the company. There’s no way we could have done it without RoseRyan.
