Helping with successful growth deals throughout the business life cycle
Transactions are significant events in the life of a business - they can have a lasting impact on the future shape of the organisations involved. Because the stakes are high for both buyers and sellers, experience, determination and pragmatism are required to bring deals successfully through to conclusion.
We work with businesses, their owners and management teams in the mid-market at all stages of their life cycle.
From exploring the strategic options available to businesses and shareholders through to advising and project managing the chosen solution, we provide a truly integrated corporate finance offering:
We work with clients to enhance business value through operational improvements 12-18 months before a disposal in order to present the business ready for sale.
We work with vendors to plan, anticipate and explain any areas on which prospective purchasers may require comfort, thereby helping protect shareholder value.
We deliver bid support services throughout the acquisition process and are committed to adding value at every stage.
Vendor due diligence
Our approach to vendor due diligence balances the vendor’s desire to protect shareholder value, with the need for a robust and independent report to be used by the purchaser and their funders.
Separation and integration
We prepare businesses for sale by separating them from existing operations, and integrate newly acquired businesses, cutting out duplicate operations to release value.
We build integrated models for pricing and structuring deals, and quantify returns, risks and sensitivities to provide a clear point of view to help you make better decisions.
We provide practical and pragmatic advice on tax that complements your commercial objectives.
Financial due diligence
We help you make wise investment decisions, providing financial due diligence that is clearly linked to your requirements as purchasers, and also suitable for your funders.
Commercial due diligence
We deliver thoughtful, robust advice based on primary and secondary research combined with quantitative analyses and focus on the key issues that impact value.
Operational and IT due diligence
We provide specialist operational and technology advice to help a range of organisations in the public and private sectors achieve their deal goals.
