  • Our straight-talking approach eases you into a transaction strategy, managing the complex process in a practical manner. This allows you to focus on the day to day running of your business, safe in the knowledge that you have access to our complete range of lead advisory and due diligence services which include:

    Mergers & Acquisitions Disposals Management Buy-ins and Buy-outs Re-financing (debt & equity) Cash-outs Succession Planning Valuations Strategic Advice

    In our lead advisory capacity we will project manage the entire process from start to completion. We begin by understanding the business and exploring the options available and from there formulating a strategy to achieve your objectives. An outline of the primary services we provide are as follows:

    Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A)Our knowledgeable team will guide you through the merger / acquisition process. We have access to specialist corporate finance databases and an extensive contact base enabling us to identify potential targets that meet your criteria. We will approach the shortlisted targets on your behalf, establishing dialogue and raising the possibility of a transaction. We will manage the process from negotiations on price and structure, through to legal completion.

    Management Buy-InsIn the initial meeting, we will establish your acquisition criteria and use this to identify potential targets, making approaches to the most suitable ones on your behalf. We will lead negotiations with the vendors and undertake an appropriate fundraising exercise, including assisting with the preparation of a business plan. We will provide commercial input into the legal process to ensure a smooth completion.

    Management Buy-outsWe will approach the vendors on your behalf or simply step-in as your adviser and assess the viability of a proposition and identify the most appropriate way this can be achieved; allowing you to focus on the day-to-day running of your business.

    We will secure appropriate funding from debt and equity providers and project manage all parties through to successful completion.

    Disposals Utilising our market research experience and international network of professional contacts, we will help you through the entire process; from preparing your business for sale, targeting acquirers who may pay a premium and managing the transaction through to a successful conclusion. We aim to maximise shareholder value. Raising Finance Understanding the most suitable funders for your business is essential and will help avoid time wasting and increase the chances of success. Our experienced team will help identify the best strategy and relevant funders. We will assist with the preparation of a business plan, manage the funding process and deliver the investment you require.

    Cash-outsIncreasingly there is a demand from the Private Equity market to buy equity stakes in privately owned businesses, either minority or controlling stakes, allowing owner-managers to de-risk their personal positions in a tax efficient manner whilst raising additional development finance to take the business forward towards an eventual sale. We have extensive relationships in the Private Equity community and can guide you through the process.

    Strategic AdviceOften business owners reach cross roads where having an independent third party to act as a sounding board can be helpful in determining and focussing in on future strategic options. We have the experience and breadth of knowledge across a wide range of sectors and situations to provide you with advice that can assist you to unlock the right future path.

    Due Diligence When looking to acquire a business it is fundamental to understand the financial and commercial risks. Our due diligence will identify critical issues, enabling you to negotiate and make decisions with all the facts to hand.
