At BTG Advisory our forensic services experts are qualified to provide expert services in the resolution of disputes arising from the sale and merger of companies and businesses.
With company and business sale and purchase (SPA) transactions, the date of the SPA is often not the end of the matter – it is the start of a post-sale chronology in which both parties have an interest. The agreements include numerous warranties and terms, breaches of which lead to losses. Our team assist in the unravelling of any breaches and determine what losses flow from them.
The team see increasing numbers of SPAs which allow for deferred consideration, subject to certain terms and conditions. All too often the vendors do not receive any or all of this deferred consideration. BTG Advisory’s role is to investigate the reasons for this non-payment and compute what should be payable. This may involve us in restating completion accounts or investigating any changes to accounting treatments after the new owners have taken over the business.
