Why tax-efficient mergers and acquisitions matter?

We often wonder that why tax efficient mergers and acquisitions matter. Companies with global ambitions cannot afford to ignore the opportunities for profitable growth offered by mergers and acquisitions. But if these transactions are to create real value, it is important that the tax implications of each deal are dealt with from the very beginning. This is especially important in cross-border deals, where differing regulations and business cultures need to be reconciled in order to reveal the risks and opportunities of a transaction.

Similarly, private equity seeking to increase return on investment cannot afford to ignore tax. Recent trends show that M&A transactions have become more international and volumes have increased tremendously. Highly-leveraged transactions allow for big ticket deals, in particular within the private equity market.

Let’s understand how a deal is done?

In a highly professional and competitive deal environment, many transactions are organized as structured auctions. Only the strongest / highest bidder will win. When strategic investors compete with private equity for the few attractive targets offered, understanding how a deal is done becomes crucially significant. To assess the real value of a transaction you need to understand the historical tax risks associated with an enterprise for sale. To win an auction, you also need to evaluate and quantify upside potential. In many cases, tax can make a difference.
