“The business world is littered with acquisitions that haven't delivered incremental value.  We’re here to make sure your acquisition isn't one of them.”

Acquisitions

If you’re a business owner looking to accelerate your growth by acquisition, our Corporate Finance team takes a hands-on approach to helping you identify the perfect strategic or opportunistic target to achieve your business objectives.

If you already have a target in mind, working with an adviser at an early stage makes sense to show credibility and to complete a fact find before a formal approach. We can also help to establish how receptive the target business might be.

We have extensive experience covering all stages of acquisitions, including:

  • Researching and identifying the ideal target business
  • Approaching and negotiating with the target business on your behalf
  • Determining valuation and developing the initial offer
  • Fundraising for the acquisition
  • Negotiating Heads of Agreement
  • Tax planning
  • Financial due diligence on the target
  • Project managing the entire transaction from start to finish

Why select us as your adviser and partner? What sets us apart is that we haven’t always just been advisers. Of course, we’ve successfully completed many acquisitions but our Directors have had their own businesses, grown businesses organically and by acquisition, been investors, worked at the highest levels in financing institutions and navigated the legal system. We promise a pragmatic, straight talking and commercial approach to help you achieve the best possible outcome.
