It is the matter of fact that majority of deals do not increase shareholder value and may even result in substantial losses. There is a long list of issues that may break the deal or devalue its potential benefits. Every deal, however large or small, is unique and we understand this.

Tax risks add to complexity of the deal and may even break it. However, tax risks may be manageable if you are aware of them, if you understand them and if you are able to turn them into your opportunities.
