External growth operations (mergers, acquisitions, JV, minority shareholdings) are essential for penetrating new markets, both in emerging and mature countries. 

The financial or technical rationality of an M&A transaction is not enough to guarantee its success. 

MMC understand the environment of an M&A operation, assess the respectability of targets and decision-makers, map internal governance, and analyze what is called the “invisible” aspects of an external growth operation: asset history, reality of the commercial track record, real intentions of shareholders, business practices of shareholders and managers, relations with public or regulatory authorities, latent liabilities, hidden and outstanding litigation, intellectual property issues, image and reputation elements of natural and legal persons, etc.
