Buy-Side Advisory

Many companies identify an acquisitive strategy as the most effective way to grow their core business or to diversify their market position. Through many years of experience, we maintain a core belief that the highest probability of success from an acquisition starts with developing a clear and consistent acquisition strategy and maintaining a disciplined process throughout any potential transaction.

Acquisitions can be in the form of a strategic purchase of a company’s competitor or one in its supply chain, a management team’s buyout of existing ownership, or a financial investment into a new industry vertical or market. Our professionals have frequently advised on successful acquisitions by understanding our clients’ objectives and instilling experience and discipline into the strategic acquisition process.

Buy-Side advisory includes:

  • Long-term strategic planning
  • Identification and development of an acquisition strategy
  • Qualification of potential acquisition prospects
  • In-depth due diligence and valuation of specific targets
  • Negotiating and structuring deal value and other considerations
  • Engage capital markets and identify transaction funding options
  • Strategic execution of deal to support successful investment returns
