Merger as an SMEs Strategy to Combat a Crisis
Free preview
The merger of companies is not limited to public companies only, it is also applicable to SMEs. In fact, SMEs have abetter chance to grow and compete if they can be merged as one stronger and bigger company. With combined resources and strengths, the merged company can reduce overhead, improve efficiency and gain a bigger market share, improving both top and bottom lines.

The biggest challenge would be to merge the complementary and synergistic SMEs as one. Most of them are not professionally managed and may not even have proper accounting. Engaging a boutique investment bank or perhaps a corporate finance experienced individual to drive the process might have a higher chance of putting a few SMEs together.

In this pandemic which is not going away soon, it is important for SMEs to look at the option of merger to be a stronger company to survive through this period. The selection of merger candidates is undoubtedly important as by merging 3-4 complementary SMEs will produce a more complete and stronger company.

Once there is a stronger, bigger and more complete company, it increases the possibility of raising funds from VC or PE and an exit either through IPO or trade sales is possible.

With the current COVID-19 situation, many SMEs face an uncertain future. Global safe distancing measures and supply chain disruptions result in drastic reduction of demand from customers and slow payments.

Fortunately, the government has shown strong support and unleashed numerous measures to help companies defer rent, loan repayment and defray wages. New lending schemes are also devised to help viable SMEs remain in business.

In this webinar, two financial experts will share with you useful insights and tips to improve your business and personal financial situation in these challenging times.

● How to tap on government support measures
● What do banks look for when lending
● How to show you are a viable business
● Personal financial management in uncertain times
