Bid Support and Defence

The team at ONE Advisory provides bid support services that help listed entities defend and make public bids.

For public companies that feel vulnerable to an approach, we prepare hostile reviews of the business to assess the level of vulnerability. We also help potential acquirers analyse target companies.

For defenders, we work from the moment a bid is announced to help defend, or achieve the best price, for the company. We help company management position themselves favourably to the markets during the bid.

We provide our services to:

  • Companies looking to acquire a public company target;
  • Companies that may be vulnerable due to  under performing share indices, market criticism or the possibility that the company may be broken up; and
  • Companies announcing a restructuring, a change of strategy or an ambitious acquisition.
