A value driven approach
Acquisition Due Diligence
Whether you are looking to buy a business in an auction process, with exclusivity, or making a speculative approach, you will maximise your ability to make an informed investment decision if you have access to swift and comprehensive analysis around the key issues.
Vendor Due Diligence
Investors increasingly expect a greater degree of information before committing their own resources and capital to a sale.
Management teams looking to divest will want to optimise the outcome of this decision but manage the potential time consuming preparation for sale. We will work with you to compliment your existing skills and resource and help you address the challenges prior to and during the disposal process.
For Corporates that are acquiring, value is typically realised in the form of synergies, or when they are disposing, from capturing and communicating effective value enhancement propositions for any entities being sold. For Private Equity clients, operational efficiencies and cost reduction continue to be a greater area of focus, both in the area of pre-deal due diligence and in their approach to managing the organisations under their ownership.
Commercial Due Diligence
Our fast growing Commercial Due Diligence (CDD) team works to provide highly customised commercial transaction support to the M&A process of both private equity and corporate clients.
I.T. Due Diligence
IT is increasingly a key factor in enabling post deal business development initiatives, and successful integration and separation programmes.
Sale & Purchase Agreement Advice
Whether you are selling a business and want to achieve a clean exit at a predictable price or buying a business and want appropriate remedies in place if the target’s financial position is not as expected, the financial terms of the sale and purchase agreement are of critical importance.
Businesses looking to grow via acquisition need to channel their energies into pursuing the most appropriate targets and maximising the chance of making a successful bid for the right target.
If you receive an unexpected or unwelcome approach, you need to be able to defend your financial and operational track record, accounting policies and performance against market expectations/peer group at short notice.
Equity Capital Markets
Our capital markets professionals advise UK and international companies raising equity and debt capital in global capital markets, providing a range of services to deal with each client’s specific situation and needs.
Post Merger Integration and Carve-out Seperation
The merging or de-merging of two or more organisations triggers a flood of complexities. The best serial acquirers follow a structured and disciplined approach, with clear strategic objectives, detailed implementation plans, and a focus on creating and capturing value from the start.
