Sell side & Buy side

Strategic fit drives the potential value of any sale or acquisition. But securing the optimum partnership for long-term growth in marcoms and tech-enabled sectors requires a considered approach and extensive network.

Our M&A expertise covers both sell side and buy side:

  • Sale mandates
  • Private Equity investments
  • Growth partner planning
  • Acquisition research
  • Acquisition mandates
  • Pre-sale preparation
  • MBO/MBIs

Finding the right growth partner for your business

We connect our clients with the best possible growth partners, for both strategic and financial opportunities. We will advise you on how to build pre-emptive relationships with acquirers and maximise the valuation of your business. You can tap into our extensive network of new, emerging and heritage investors and acquirers.

Rather than positioning your business as ‘for sale’, we focus on growth potential. We will identify the key drivers of your business and help you to develop and articulate a growth plan. Using this strategy enables us to explore synergies with potential partners to find the most promising routes for expansion and the right cultural fit.

Through our experience working with best-in-class marketing, communications and tech-driven businesses, we know how to source the most relevant and innovative partnerships. Our deep understanding of these dynamic industries informs our sell-side and buy-side projects, meaning our advice is strategically focused on the unique opportunities for your sector.

Ensuring a smooth transaction

Almost all deal structures rely on a successful partnership and growth after sale to realise their full value. Through our breadth of transaction experience, our corporate finance advisors know the common integration challenges and obstacles, so our services extend beyond a transaction. We offer ongoing support post-sale to help address any issues and optimise the partnership to ensure the business flourishes in its new environment.
