"Both our company and its business are sound, but we have no choice but to give up due to the lack of a successor."
We have heard many such lamentations from the owners of small- and medium-sized businesses throughout Japan.

Our sense of mission and strong determination to do something about this issue facing Japanese society is what gave birth to M&A Plus.

The thought of M&A Plus

We have had many company executives, mainly ones who are active outside Japan's big cities, tell us how they would like to consider an M&A as a solution to the issue of a lack of successors, but do not know who to consult with. Meanwhile, M&A experts* from all over Japan have told us how they would like to know more about the M&A needs of companies in other prefectures.

The Deloitte Tohmatsu Group has launched M&A matching platform M&A Plus in cooperation with financial institutions, lawyers, certified public accountants, tax accountants and M&A experts across the country. Drawing on a wealth of information, M&A Plus will help you complete your M&A in a fair, quick and reasonable fashion.
