M&A Diligence Support
Elanex has unique technology to enable the rapid, reliable translation of financial, legal, technical and similar diligence materials
Global Opportunities – Unique Challenges
Cross-border M&A deals have many unique challenges such as a need to quickly translate significant volumes of information. The time required to complete translations is often much longer than anticipated. The resulting delays getting the deal closed can add millions of dollars in additional transaction costs. Elanex has created an M&A translation solution with technologies that greatly reduce the time to complete translations and deliver them with unmatched speed and quality.
A combination of unique technology and over 34,000 practitioners means we can assemble a team overnight and be working on your deal tomorrow. We have the resources and automation to keep the project moving so your staff does not have to manage multiple freelancers or small agencies.
Elanex removes language barriers in the discovery process by turning around translations at a lightning pace by using teams running 24x7 around the globe. This allows due diligence teams to drill down into key issues immediately, reducing last-minute surprises that jeopardize a smooth close.
Specialized Quality – and Confidentiality
Our practitioner database has many specialized subject matter experts available around the globe. We assemble a team just for your deal. Not only the language, but also for your client’s industry and subject material to ensure the translation is a resource for your deal team. Our proprietary “Anonymizer” technology camouflages client names, product references and other confidential information.
The Elanex technology suite enables us to reduce typical M&A transaction translation costs by 20 to 40% for professional human translation. In parallel where appropriate, our fully automated translation solution can provide throughput of millions of words per day at a fraction of the cost of human translation.
Specific M&A Experience
We have the experience and understand the process and specialized work that comes with M&A translation projects. Our team knows what it takes to help you get the deal done.
Government Antitrust Enforcement Action
A large M&A transaction required translation of over 25 million words in 7,500 documents responding to a request for information by a government antitrust enforcement authority. Elanex completed the translation effort within 6 weeks and was highly commended by the commissioning law firm for the professionalism, speed and accuracy of our solution.
In another M&A transaction involving a large telecom company, Elanex translated over 200 pages of legal and financial due diligence for the investment banking team in less than 48 hours over a holiday weekend to help keep the deal in motion.
