Q&A

"M&A seems to be flourishing, but deal information does not come to me"
Instead of waiting for information from advisers, let's take the initiative to acquire / disclose information in FM. Information acquisition / disclosure is free in FM.

"I'd like to acquire a company, but the service of this kind automatically involves the same broker as the seller and I don't want conflicts of interest."
Please do not worry. Both buyers and sellers can choose advisors freely. If you use FM Adviser Market, you can get the estimate of up to 3 companies at one time on necessary services. Please feel free to browse various Adviser Markets and apply.

"I'd like to retire after selling off my company because I'm too old, but is it mandatory to hire any adviser agreement in FM? I'm the person who knows the value of the company better than anyone else and I don't need an adviser because I have passed through a number of desperate negotiations."
Please do not worry. Even if neither the seller nor the buyer requires an advisor, there is no problem at all. FM is exactly the matching service that exists for such autonomous management.

"Saying something, using FM means expensive M&A matching fee?"
Please do not worry. Regarding M&A Market, fee is; Seller: free 1 / Buyer: 0.1% of transfer price (Min: USD 10K). In addition, other matching sites / M&A brokerages may add officers' retirement bonus to transfer price in the fee calculation, but FM calculates the fee only with transfer price.

"If a applyer is the one who doesn't understand M&A and has to hire a full-service adviser, is it going to be expensive after all?"
Exactly. However, in order to make a successful M&A, it is important that management understand the synergy and processes of M&A that they are about to perform and use advisors as necessary. Advisers are usually professionals who are familiar with the investment "process", not investment "return". For example, you may better hire just an adviser on documentation / negotiation that are short of your company's resources.

"Saying something, using FM means expensive adviser matching fee?"
Please do not worry. Regarding Adviser Market, Fee is; Buyer: free1 / Seller:5% of compensation upon receipt1

"I think I have enough knowledge that isn't behind major adviser firms, but I have just started my own practice and have no reputation."
Please do not worry. Regarding Adviser Market, all firms are equal before incentive fee rate (FR) / hourly rate (HR).

"It's crazy that everybody aims at M&A. Do not they know organic growth?"
Exactly. Since business is eventually dependent on human resources, there is no need to be concerned about M&A if you achieve high growth, utilizing excellent existing management. However, it is unusual for companies to build management teams with all managerial qualities, so please try to strengthen the management team by scouting officers / general managers of your company's weak field in FM Executive Market.

"Even listed companies that have outside directors are scandalous. Perhaps they hire naive friends / professors / bureaucrats without management experience. I wish they recruit talents from wider market."
Exactly. Please make full use of Executive Market for nomination of highly competent outside directors.

"Saying something, using FM means expensive executive matching fee?"
Please do not worry. Regarding Executive Market, Fee is; Offerer: 5% of annual base salary / Seeker: free1
