Our M&A Advisory Service typically involves the following processes:
Understanding Client Objectives
We invest time, effort, and attention in understanding your specific circumstances to ensure all potential financial and strategic alternatives are properly evaluated and an effective and efficient game plan is developed.
Identification and Evaluation of M&A Targets
Finding valuable acquisition targets requires some finesse and a disciplined approach. To identify and evaluate M&A targets, our M&A advisors will help in defining your acquisition strategy, testing your investment criteria, building a target list, beginning target outreach, and managing the M&A funnel.
We advise clients to negotiate accounting aspects of a sale and purchase agreement. The advice would include investigation, guidance and commentary on pricing mechanisms, warranties (if any), indemnity claims, relevant representations, any dispute resolution mechanism related to purchase price adjustments, and all other accounting related SPA clauses.
Our skilled and dedicated professionals have years of experience in business valuation. The firm performs an extensive analysis and assessment of privately-owned companies across a range of industries, and evaluate industry trends among other factors so as to inform clients to the range of value that they can expect.
In-depth Business Review
Expect us to devote a considerable amount of time and resources in understanding the intricacies of your industry and nature of business. This particular effort is crucial in the identification of factors that particular buyers need emphasized. An in-depth business review is also necessary to anticipate potential areas of vulnerability and strength that may or may not require further analysis and support.
Identification of Prospective Buyers
The firm and its advisory team have an extensive database and access to resources that will help you identify and qualify financial and strategic buyers. Our team of M&A advisors are experts when it comes to actively marketing deal flow and identifying portfolio transaction opportunities.
Negotiation and Closing
Our M&A advisors can address various issues that may arise throughout a transaction process. We’ve represented the interest of clients throughout all negotiations not just to maintain the best possible value even during the due diligence of a buyer but also to ensure that the terms of the purchase agreement are both fair and reasonable.
