Corporate Advisory

Our corporate advisory services range from Transaction Support, Risk Analysis, IPOs to M&As.

From our foundation as an independent valuations provider, we have developed a range of corporate advisory services that aim to help our clients grow and build value in their business.

We also help clients to project manage and facilitate a smooth end-to-end service delivery. We not only help to establish strategies but also monitor each project’s performance and progress, working hand-in-hand with other parties to ensure issues are resolved promptly and our client’s requirements are met.

Cost Management

Our Cost Management Specialists focus on helping clients to achieve maximum cost efficiencies within a short- to medium-term.

The team draws from our valuation experience to systematically analyze overheads, business expenditure and other records to identify and release potential savings from existing cost structure. This approach has delivered savings of between 10% and 60% for our clients.

We help clients realize the maximum value from their suppliers while minimizing overheads such as advertising, packaging and storage. We offer an ongoing monitoring service to help clients ensure that reductions are maintained, freeing clients to focus on running their core business. This improves the client’s bottom line with little to no financial risk.

Our clients operate across a wide range of industries from banking to consumer goods, to insurance, printing and transportation amongst others.

 Mergers & Acquisitions

Ascent Partners advises companies looking to grow through acquisitions or realize the value of their business through a well-planned and timely exit. We work with our clients through the process, including collaborating and negotiating with other professionals (e.g. accountants, financial advisers and lawyers).

Based on our extensive network of professional and business contacts, Ascent Partners is also well positioned to help companies seeking to divest or acquire a business. We help to identify, contact and screen prospective investors or buyers, finding the right partner for the transaction and ensuring our clients receive the best value from their business.

We help clients review their business, perform independent valuations, articulate their value and enter into discussions with prospective parties while meeting an array of regulatory requirements.

The experience acquired through our valuation division also enables us to assess and establish appropriate equity structures, pricing and financial arrangements.

Risk Analysis

Ascent Partners offers risk analysis to equip clients with reliable information on risk so that they can make calculated decisions. This data primarily helps clients to quantify risk levels due to the inherent variability in financial and market conditions.

Following this, Ascent Partners continues to support clients by advising on the potential implications of different financing options.

Sustainability Reporting / ESG Reporting

Ascent Syn Tao, a joint venture between Ascent Partners and SynTao, understands the global trend regarding the requirements of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Sustainable Development, and by leveraging on the many years of legal, financial and accounting experience of our multi-disciplinary team, we are in the best position to help companies to work out the business best practices on Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) as part of their operational strategies to become preferable choice amongst competition.

Transaction Support

At Ascent Partners, we draw from our valuation and advisory experience to offer our clients end-to-end support across the spectrum of transaction services. We provide clients with timely information for them to make knowledgeable and informed decisions for efficient and effective operations.

Some of our services include helping companies to plan for their exit strategies, develop financing arrangements and negotiate favorable financing terms.
