Sell-Side – Mergers and acquisitions

Selling your business involves a complex process and you need independent advice from an advisor who is experienced in handling these types of transactions. The old saying that “you only sell your company once and you need to do it well” is as true today as it ever was. In addition, you need to focus on running your business whilst a sale process in undertaken so we take all of the process for the sale transaction into our hands.

We offer a senior lead, confidential advisory service to shareholders who wish to sell their business through merger and acquisition. This typically includes the following:

  • Pre-sale planning and due diligence to ensure that the Company is in the best shape possible to undergo a sales process;
  • Advice on valuation;
  • Preparation of an information memorandum providing non-sensitive commercial, financial and operational information on the Company;
  • Approach to, and negotiation with, potential acquirors who have been pre-agreed with you;
  • Project management through to completion of the sale of the company to the preferred acquiror;
  • Help and advice on any tax structuring that may be required in order to maximise the proceeds that you receive from the sale of your business.

If all of the above sounds a bit procedural, it’s really not. The journey through the sale process is full of bumps in the road but we are with you every step of the way, providing best in class advice and support to help you achieve the best outcome.

Buy-Side – Mergers and acquisitions

Acquisitions, when done correctly, are an efficient way of achieving different objectives – economies of scale, geographic, customer and service expansion, to name but a few.

Here at RPGCC, we provide an end-to-end corporate finance advisory service for those Companies and businesses who are looking to make acquisitions, including:

  • Market mapping to identify target companies that meet your acquisition criteria;
  • Approach to agreed target companies;
  • Full support and advice through negotiation with preferred target companies, financial due diligence and project management through to completion of an acquisition; and
  • Through our network of relations with funders, we are also able to help in sourcing of any debt funding required to support an acquisition.

We are of the opinion that the best way to achieve successful acquisitions is to undertake a proactive approach to the identification of, and negotiation with, target companies, as outlined above. Adopting this approach usually means you identify the best companies to fit your acquisition criteria. Furthermore, you get to negotiate with these companies on an “off market” basis and ultimately achieve better terms on the transaction.
