What We Do
OPTIONS REVIEW – FORMULATE OPTIMAL CAPITAL STRATEGY
Most businesses have a business strategy but few have a coherent capital strategy. We help clients identify, evaluate and execute the full range of capital strategy options available to them including: doing nothing (status quo), raising debt or equity for growth, making acquisitions, strategic corporate partnering, pursuing an IPO or a trade sale. Once all viable options are identified we assist in formulating the optimal capital strategy and a plan to implement it.
ACHIEVING YOUR MAXIMUM SALE VALUE
When your decision is to sell, we will advise you how to achieve the best exit outcome for your business. We are highly experienced in preparing businesses for sale and have successfully completed over 100 sale transactions. Our service includes the preparation of all transaction documents, compiling a list of potential buyers (corporate and private equity) and approaching and managing all negotiations and interactions with these buyers in order to achieve a competitive outcome. We also help our clients select the right legal and accounting advisors to ensure closure on optimal terms.
ADDING SIZE AND STRENGTH TO YOUR BUSINESS
We help our clients execute acquisitions that will add maximum value to their business and help them achieve their growth objectives. Our first step is to help clients formulate and document their business strategy and then we canvas the local and international markets for potential acquisition targets on their behalf. These companies may not be currently on the market but are identified for their potential to add maximum value to our clients’ businesses. We handle all negotiations and keep our client’s identity confidential until the appropriate point in the transaction. This allows our clients to stay one step removed and focussed on running their business. We have successfully completed more than 50 buy-side acquisitions for our clients.
(EQUITY AND DEBT) – SUPPORTING BUSINESS GROWTH
Business growth can be achieved efficiently and effectively with the support of new capital. We are experienced in raising equity and debt capital for both public and private clients and have successfully completed more than 100 capital raisings to date. We work independently of banks, stockbrokers, accountants, legal and tax advisers. Our independent position gives us the opportunity to prepare and present companies to potential investors without any preconceptions or prejudice, and allows us to manage the entire process from initial meetings through to closing. We are also experienced in raising and restructuring bank and private debt facilities. We have strong relationships with both local and international private equity, venture capital, corporate, family office and angel investors.
