Now, enhancing corporate value through mergers and acquisitions (M&A) and organizational restructuring are common practice in ensuring effective corporate management. However, since M&A and organizational restructuring are large-scale strategies that have risks attached to implementing them, simple M&A and organizational restructuring may not lead to an enhancement of the corporate value. Moreover, careful consideration is required for M&A and organizational restructuring since they may have the ability to greatly influence a company's accounting and tax. JBA provides clients with various support services for M&A, services that require a high degree of knowledge in both accounting and tax.

Financial Due Diligence

M&A Process Financial due diligence is a service that identifies the financial risk of a situation by investigating the business of the investment company or target company for M&A and provides clients with investigation reports.
When performing venture capital investments or M&A, the implementation of the investment or M&A that has not undergone a detailed investigation increases the risk of overlooking the target company's important issues and major risk areas. For the venture capital investments and M&A to result in success, performing financial due diligence is absolutely essential.
Our professional teams, with their great deal of expertise and practical experience, perform necessary and sufficient financial investigation and provide client with high quality reports.


The first step to succeed in organizational restructuring is to conduct a proper enterprise valuation. A common failure occurs in M&A when that acquirer pays a higher price than the reasonable value of a business. This is often a valuation (value estimation) issue.
We provide clients with high quality reports, prepared by our professional teams with a great deal of expertise and practical experience in the area of valuation.
