Delivering premium value takes a lot more than running an auction. Far more often it’s about clearly communicating the strategic value of a combination, building rapport and relationships on both sides of a transaction, anticipating each party’s needs, and establishing fundamental trust.
We specialize in helping innovative, technology-based companies catalyze and assess a full range of sale options from strategic acquirers and private equity.
We provide a complete set of strategy, advisory, and execution services to help you identify, qualify, evaluate, and close on strategic acquisitions.
Corporate business unit divestitures are strategically important transactions. We work with many large public and private clients and understand how to aggressively manage effective and crisply-executed divestitures.
Capital is a commodity. We work with your team to identify financing options that also deliver strategic benefits, including sales and distribution partnerships, joint development programs, and brand development initiatives via world-class partners.
Equity can be the most expensive layer of your capital stack. We can help design and implement various debt solutions tailored to your specific business needs.
