Each side of an M&A transaction consumes the valuable time and resources of an organization, often to the detriment of other equally important initiatives. To help companies effectively manage the intricacies of the process, we provide our clients with the advantage of a team of financial professionals who have closed transactions from both the buy-side and sell-side perspectives.
Specifically, we help our clients to:
- Prepare a valuation range of the sales price
- Create a "Book" used to market the business
- Develop and implement a sales strategy
- Identify potential suitors
- Negotiate and close the transaction
On buy-side transactions, our capital markets team develops acquisition metrics, creates pro forma financials to measure and access an acquisition's impact, identifies and qualifies potential acquisition candidates, and then negotiates, structures and executes the transaction. We can also assist a client in accessing the capital required to fund the acquisition.
Whether selling the entire company or merely divesting a division, business owners need to analyze market viability, competition and numerous other factors. Our capital markets team completes this analysis and defines the exact steps necessary to successfully sell the business.
