We can act as a client’s outsourced M&A department, providing experienced and quality advice in the areas of valuation, deal structuring, deal negotiating, and deal management. We can also identify and research potential acquisition targets and bolt-on opportunities to enhance our clients’ portfolios, open the doors with potential vendors and lead the negotiation process to secure the best possible deal.
We can create attractive acquisition opportunities for our clients by carrying out an exclusive search for relevant targets in the UK and overseas, to a brief agreed with you.
Through dedicated research and extensive personal contacts, we produce a shortlist of relevant businesses within a matter of weeks.
Once you have agreed the target companies, we are experienced ‘door openers’ and initiate discussions with the vendors. We value target companies dispassionately, taking into account the financial and commercial benefits to be gained, and recommend the most suitable way to structure a deal.
We then work to negotiate the keenest possible purchase price in conjunction with you, draft heads of agreement and nurse the deal safely to legal completion.
In circumstances where you have already identified a target or a list of targets, you can hand that list to us, and we will work as part of your acquisition team to achieve the best result for you.
