Cross-Border Acquisition

Cross-border mergers and acquisitions can be a daunting exercise for foreign firms without local assistance . . . but American Appraisal’s global footprint made obtaining local perspectives easy for an Asian-based client’s acquisitions of US and Mexican facilities.

 

To expand its global reach and enter the Latin American market, a large Asian-based chemicals manufacturer acquired a polymer and resins manufacturing business with facilities in the southeastern United States and Mexico. The transaction, which would enable the company to expand its product offerings and increase R&D efforts, involved: 

  • Land, land improvements and buildings, consisting of 375 acres of land and 1.4 million square feet of building area in the United States and 89 acres of land and 1.3 million square feet of building area in Mexico
  • Various classes of personal property associated with each facility
  • Working capital
  • Liabilities/contingent liabilities
  • Intangible assets including:
    • Technology/intellectual property/licenses
    • Trademarks/trade names
    • Customer relationships
    • Noncompete agreements
    • Assembled and trained workforces
    • Software
    • Websites and domain names

Our Asian-based client required valuation of the above assets and liabilities for financial reporting purposes in accordance with IFRS 3 and IAS 38. To best serve our client, American Appraisal offices in India and the United States collaborated on the engagement.

Licensed real estate appraisal staff from American Appraisal’s Atlanta office valued the land, improvements and leasehold interests associated with the two facilities. Professionally accredited machinery and equipment appraisers - one with a background in chemical engineering - from the New York, Chicago and Toronto offices valued the various personal property classes. Financial analysts in our Bangalore office applied their extensive experience with intangibles valuation to the various acquired intangible assets.

Work between American Appraisal’s various offices was closely coordinated, with consultants gathering information from our client and the management of both subject facilities with minimal disruption to operations.  In addition, we worked with our client’s auditors to answer questions and address comments . . . all within the client’s timeline. 

The United States remains one of the largest destinations for inbound direct foreign investment. American Appraisal’s global footprint, with more than 50 offices throughout the Americas, Europe and Asia-Pacific, leaves us well positioned to assist with these cross-border mergers and acquisitions.
