In buy-side advice, industry knowledge and the ability to analyze the business are equally crucial. Throughout the process, we work intensively with our client to identify business potential, determine its value, and decide on the strategy regarding the price.
In buy-side processes, the advisory team is often a fundamental part due to its capacity to design optimal financing solutions and raise funds in a short period of time, without being limited by any financial or alternative lender, which is a decisive factor of our independence and objectivity.
Understanding a business is fundamental to maximising its value on a sale process. Prior to the launch of any sale process we ensure that we have detailed and extensive knowledge of the business. We work closely with management teams to jointly craft the appropriate sale pitch for both buyers and potential financing entities. Our sector experience and international presence are key elements in this process.
Although a successful sale process just needs one interested bidder, it is preferred to count on a certain number of avid buyers with available funds. Our presence in Europe, Asia and CIS enables us to identify and engage with the best international buyers.
Our creativity, flexibility and independence also enable us to analyze simultaneously all possible alternatives presented, such as a divestiture, or a recapitalization, in order to provide our clients with the most appropriate solution. Our execution expertise covers all potential outcomes.
