Mergers & Acquisitions

In Central America, mergers and acquisitions are terms that have become popular in recent years, also referred to as M&A. The term refers to the practice of business groups to consolidating with the strategic objective of achieving inorganic growth. A merger involves the formation of a body of common interest by integrating the two groups into one common entity. An acquisition consists of a group buying a controlling stake - up to a 100% - of the assets or equity of another company.

 

Due to the similar nature of this process, minority investments and capital raises are often referred to as Merger and Acquisition operations as well.

 

A key step in evaluating different transactions is to understand and differentiate between a strategic buyer and a financial buyer.
