Success Stories

 

 

Practical case -  Xxx Plastic Recycling Manufacture

December 2017

John, based in Canada, was seeking to acquire or merge into another plastic recycling plant in China in an effort to relocate manufacturing efforts to Taiwan. By having the corporate HQ remain in Canada, but have manufacturing based in Taiwan, operating costs would be reduced, as well as made more efficient. Using our global expertise, we were able to suggest specific plants in China that would be the best options for an acquisition, as part of an M&A pitch book. Following the decision, we organized all M&A processes such as screening targets, doing due diligence, performing valuations, legal, accounting/finance/tax, human resources and synergy measurements and so on. We also connected with professional accountants, lawyers, and valuators and communicated with the founder/CEO so we were able to close deals successfully. In 2014, we acquired two manufacturers in China.

Down the road, John wanted to sell his business for the best price. First, we had an “Exit Business Succession Planning Pitch book” including exit time frame. Our Exit Expert can ensure the process ends in success, rather than failure. 

Here is what we did for John

  • Plan the business strategy to drive maximum value.
  • Ensure the business is in market areas that command high valuations.
  • Focus on how to add value, not just sales.
  • Make sure the business is correctly valued.
  • Pay less tax on exit! We weigh up your tax liabilities to ensure the exit doesn’t cost more than is bargained for.
  • Make sure legal sites in three locations
  • Identify potential buyers and management teams.
  • Track down the right people and systems to move forward.
  • Consider and prepare for the buyers’ needs and due diligence.
  • Work through the transitional period to minimize work and stress.
  • Plan the timing – when his business is well invested not up against issues

On Dec, 2017, we sold our client's Plastic Recycling business for 35 million to USA client in one year. I remembered two buyers asked for lower prices but didn’t meet our expectations. We waited until the best deals came to us.
