We provide buyer services for individuals, corporations, private equity groups and other investors seeking acquisition opportunities. While we can tailor our services to your specific needs, the typical “buy-side” engagement proceeds in the following manner:
Development of an Acquisition Strategy
We assist our clients with the development of their acquisition plans and strategies. Specific examples may include the development of a “roll-up” or “consolidation” strategy, a diversification strategy, etc.
We assist our clients in developing valuation models and setting expectations in terms of earnings multiples that will likely be paid for acquisition candidates.
We will coordinate the process of targeting possible acquisition candidates including contacting and screening opportunities. This process may be coordinated with Sunbelt’s 300 offices throughout the world to provide our clients with a comprehensive, international search process.
Acquisition, Negotiation and Execution
Once we have identified an attractive and viable acquisition opportunity, we assist our clients in negotiating and structuring the acquisition and coordinating the activities of our clients’ legal, accounting and tax advisors.
When required, we can assist clients with obtaining financing for their acquisitions.
