We tailor our research according to our clients’ expansion objectives to identify appropriate equity partners by geography, size and quality for our clients. We have a large global network of consultants providing us with the latest opportunities in the market. Considering a merger, joint venture or sale? Retiring ownership, private equity exit or desire to gain competitive size advantage by joining with a peer are good reasons to join forces with a larger group.
We can assist in the following areas:
Our philosophy is to have new and old owners of a business not only happy at financial level but also at commercial, strategic and at communication level. This means that a potential acquirer has to share (at most) the growth and the management strategy of the actual target and the role of the acquirer would be to facilitate the expansion through financial capabilities, support to the operations, logistic and so on. In a simple word there will not be anymore an acquired business but a new partner that will feel itself “at home”.
In the last years the concept of Acquisition has partially lost its value. The reality is that in a market with a low growth as we are experiencing at global level we are reaching the point where the simple addition of a business is not a synonym of success of the acquisition. In today’s acquisitions our clients demands to partner with companies where actual management continue to stay, manage and growth the business rather than just integrate this business.
