Mergers & Acquisitions
We provide independent and strategic advice starting from the idea generation to developing and executing M&A transactions.
We advise clients undertaking a company disposal or selling off their own business. Our objective is to obtain the best combination of price, deal structure and cultural compatibility within an agreed timescale. We develop a strong equity story and establish a qualified short-list of potential buyers. We create a discreet but intensely competitive bidding situation, lead the negotiations and actively manage the sale process through to legal completion.
We advise clients seeking to acquire in the context of strategic acquisitions, buy & build strategies, LBOs, MBOs, MBIs, or public takeover. Through leveraging our sector specialisations, we are able to generate attractive investment ideas. We are experienced ‘door openers’ and initiate a confidential dialogue with the targets. We value target companies, recommend the most suitable way to structure and finance the deal, and negotiate the best possible purchase.
Equity & Capital Markets
We advise on raising capital at each stage of a company’s development, including early-stage or growth financing and IPO.
We help growth companies raise capital from investors that best fit in terms of industry focus, business model, and growth stage. Raising capital can be a challenging and time consuming task, but we know how we best support our clients so they can remain focused on running their business. And through leveraging our strong international network, we provide efficient access to a variety of relevant funding sources, including venture capital, private equity, family offices, etc.
As independent adviser, we advise clients in defining and implementing a suitable capital markets strategy as well as in all aspects of equity and follow-on equity offerings. We help business owners, boards of directors, investors, trustees and other corporate leaders fulfill their fiduciary responsibilities, mitigate risk or determine corporate value – providing them with comprehensive analyses and unbiased opinions based on rigorous analysis on a wide range of transactions.
