OUR CORPORATE FINANCE EXPERTISE

Use Our Experience for Your Incredible Projects

Our team of Corporate Finance professionals help both buy and sell-side M&A advisory firms by providing consistent support throughout the process. 
We acknowledge how stressful these transactions can be not just for the involved parties but for advisory firms as well that they engage. Our goal is to make that process as smooth and efficient as possible.

OUR M&A SUPPORT SERVICES

TARGET IDENTIFICATION & PROFILING

We help buy-side firms identify potential merger/acquisition targets through our creative thinking and expert view of the marketplace. We reduce your effort and optimise the entire research process by directing your focus towards carefully researched and shortlisted company profiles that are the best fit as per your strategy, objectives and capabilities.

COMMERCIAL DUE DILIGENCE

We contribute towards your decision-making process and by helping you avoid ‘bad deals’ by carefully analysing the shortlisted target company’s market position which includes an analysis of its products/services, market share, strategic partnerships, customer feedback etc.

M&A VALUATION & MODELING

Our experienced analysts can help you evaluate potential target companies by using different valuation techniques in order to assess the target company’s standalone value as well as the post-synergy value.

Valuation is at the core of all M&A activities. Assessing a business’s value is the starting point to a transaction whether you are a buyer or seller. A valuation of assets at an early stage of the M&A process enables a buyer to understand the seller’s motivation for the transaction. Producing a robust valuation requires a detailed analysis of the business, and understanding of its key value drivers, its competitive strengths and weaknesses and the risks as well as opportunities it faces.

This detailed analysis is essential for:
assessing the reasonableness and risks of future income streams which are the foundation of income-based valuations;
identifying benchmark comparables which are the basis of valuation under the market approach.

Our team has extensive experience in valuing companies and assets across a broad range of industry sectors. We draw on our extensive sector knowledge derived from both consultancy and executive management experience to determine the appropriate valuation methodology to provide well-informed, insightful, robust and transparent valuation opinions.

M&A PITCHBOOKS

We often hear how bankers like to complain about, well a lot of things, but the top of the list is undoubtedly “investment banking pitch books.” Most analysts swear that you will devote all your hours to creating these documents, while others say that they’re extremely time-consuming but not that terrible to create.


Nevertheless, it is a burden they are always willing to share, or even better, transfer to someone else given the opportunity. We help IB analysts prepare pitchbooks for their M&A clients in order to help them persuade a client or potential client to take action and pay for the bank’s services. If the pitchbook is being used by investment advisors, it may include their biographical information such as experience, educational qualifications, licenses, and industry awards. The sales team of an investment bank uses the details outlined in the pitchbook to sell its services to potential clients.

We make the following types of Pitch Books

General Pitchbook

Deal Pitchbook

Management Presentations

Sell-side M&A Pitchbooks

FAQ

How do you charge for your buy/sell-side services?
Our fee structure varies depending on the project and our relationship with the client. For longer term projects we charge monthly retainers, and for ongoing engagements (for eg with M&A advisory firms) we charge either a fixed fee or an hourly rate per project. The actual fee depends on the number of analysts working with you.
Is there a minimum tenure to contract your services on an ongoing basis ?
There is no minimum tenure as such but we do like to sign a contract and fix a contract term.
Do you work as a team or will I be appointed an individual analyst?
It depends on the nature and complexity of the project and of course what the client wants. Usually it's a team of experts working on a project but for a project with fixed deliverables, we usually assign a dedicated analyst to the client.
