Business takeover advisory
A merger and acquisition (M&A) advisory firm provides advice on corporate mergers, acquisitions and divestitures as well as debt and equity financing. M&A advisory firms are different from an investment bank in the fact that an investment bank, in addition to performing an M&A advisory role, may also:
- Advise with the issuance and placement of stock;
- Act as an underwriter or agent when corporations are issuing securities;
- Maintain markets for previously issued securities; and
- Offer advisory services to investors.
