Mergers & acquisitions

The number of mergers and takeovers around the world has never been so high. The complexity of such transactions demands experienced and dedicated advisers who can identify risks and opportunities and add value throughout the lifecycle of a deal. We can provide you with experts like these to assist you and offer you integrated strategies and solutions to manage corporate risks in an increasingly complex global environment. The Aon Mergers & Acquisitions Group (AMAG) puts its know-how at your disposal – before, during and after the transaction.

Highlighting risks and securing investments

The complexity of M&A negotiations often makes it difficult to assess all the risks and potential liability and makes particular demands of risk management. One of the main tasks for any potential investor is to look into this aspect at an early stage, as the insights gained will have a great deal of influence, even early on in the process, on whether a transaction succeeds or fails. For example, it is increasingly the case that conducting an insurance due diligence process and the indication of a new insurance solution from the point of acquisition are crucial to securing corporate finance by way of bank loans, silent partners or support from the state.

During the insurance due diligence phase, we establish contact with your other providers of due diligence services in order to ensure that analysis is thorough and coordinated.

What we can offer in M&A

Our outstanding range of services offers you many advantages in terms of finance, insurance, pensions and employee benefits. We also provide you with support right through the whole transaction process, in negotiating a price and in reaching strategic decisions.

The services we offer financial investors, M&A advisors and in the B2B area include:

  • Due diligence and risk management, insurance cover and occupational pensions solutions
  • Warranty and indemnity insurance (securing entitlements to guarantees under the purchase contract)
  • Further specialised products (e.g. option-based solutions)
  • Portfolio approach (optimised insurance cover for holding companies)

We keep you constantly informed about the outcomes from our work in line with your timetable. Our reports are drafted in a clear and concise style, giving you a better understanding of past, current, and future risks. One of the benefits of this is that discovering hidden risks can put you in an advantageous position in negotiations. We also provide you with a 100-day action plan that can be put into effect once the transaction is completed. After all, despite the pressure of time, we want you to be able to reach sound decisions in good time.

We offer both purchasers and vendors special solutions when differences about the acceptance of guarantees and risks (“deal breakers”) surface during transaction negotiations. Even after the transaction has been successfully concluded, we continue to help you optimise the insurance policies that are already in place and also with the implementation of a new insurance programme.
