Our process includes four main focus areas to save you time and money, keeping you focused on the core business and ultimately gain a successful result.
1. Acquisition planning
We will build clarity around your acquisition goals and refine suitable business profiles that fit with your strategy. This process includes investment size, funding support, development of key target metrics and parameters, as well as post-acquisition priorities and strategy.
Once we are clear on the acquisition plan and profiles, we then use our vast network of accountants, bankers and lawyers to research and source direct targets in order to engage with suitable companies. We undertake pre-offer due diligence engagement before entering into any negotiation.
