Mergers & Acquisition

Our Global PEO supports your compliant overseas merger or acquisition

Fast-track your expansion with a merger or acquisition

The merger or acquisition of an established company in a foreign market can be an effective entry point for your global expansion.

As expansion experts, New Horizons offers strategic guidance to simplify your merger or acquisition in a new country. Through our Global PEO, we can also facilitate your merger or acquisition, without the need to establish a local legal entity or subsidiary.

When you engage New Horizons’ Global PEO, our local employment specialists recruit your workforce and become their legal Employer of Record. This allows you to focus on your core business goals, rather than employment compliance and administration.

By conducting a merger or acquisition with our Global PEO, you save valuable time and money (in many cases thousands of dollars in establishment costs). This ensures that your cross-border merger or acquisition is financially viable. 

Benefits of a Global PEO for mergers and acquisitions

Partnering with New Horizons’ Global PEO allows you to reduce costs when conducting a merger or acquisition in a foreign market. We also provide ongoing strategic support and help you to maintain compliance with local employment and tax regulations. 

Strategic advice

Utilizing our local market knowledge, we provide strategic guidance that identifies whether a merger or acquisition in a target country is likely to succeed.

Reduced set-up costs

Engaging a Global PEO when conducting a merger or acquisition can substantially reduce costs by managing the workforce of the new entity.


A Global PEO ensures that after the merger or acquisition has taken place, all applicable employment and tax laws are complied with.

Frequently asked questions

It can sometimes make sense to start from scratch in your country of expansion. In other cases, it’s more feasible to partner with a local company via a merger or acquisition. By taking this route, you’re able to leverage existing supply chains and networks, as well as the local knowledge of a company already successful in that country.
