M&A can be broadly divided into three phases.
- (1) Pre-M&A phase (M&A preparation phase)
- (2) Execution phase (M&A execution phase)
- (3) Post M&A phase (company operation phase)
In more specific terms, (1) encompasses creating investment strategy, selecting the investment target, working out the investment scheme, and approaching the target company, (2) includes due diligence, valuation, contract negotiation, and closing procedure, and (3) covers creating a plan for company operation after acquisition and implementing the plan. Therefore, the activities are very extensive and several related experts are involved in a deal. From the standpoint of the client, this may be frustrating because despite of outsourcing the entire procedure, the experts need to be changed in between and they must start sharing the information from scratch.

Team members of ASPASIO Group come from M&A advisory firms, consulting firms, funds, audit firms, law offices, financial institutions (banks, security companies), trading companies, and other businesses.
