M&A Advisory

Advisory services for mergers, financing, capital tie-up, acquisitions, stock sales, business transfers and organizational reform

Increasing global competition combined with saturation and shrinkage of the domestic Japanese market have compelled corporations; large caps as well as small and medium-sized enterprises; to explore and effect cross-border M&A as potential business solutions.

Our financial advisory service assists both blue chips and SME clients for variety of strategic needs through application of our accumulated domestic and cross-border M&A expertise, having regularly served Japanese clients as financial advisor for their domestic & cross-border advisory needs. And rather unique among independent investment banking boutiques in Tokyo, we maintain a growing track record of assisting non-Japanese clients seeking advice for raising funds and/or divesting companies/assets in Japan and abroad.

We offer to our clients highly selective M&A opportunities in various sectors and transaction sizes by leveraging our extensive network across US, EU, and Asia. In divestitures, auctions and capital raising situations, we offer to our clients access to broad and deep networks among Japanese blue chips, midcaps, startups and VC/PE funds to find the “right” strategic or financial partner, so that our clients may reap maximum benefits.
