M&A: Trade Sale / Acquisition

It’s clear that strategic fit drives the potential value of a sale or acquisition.

But how do you create strategic fit in sale, acquisition or merger? And how can you achieve a premium valuation for your business?

SI Partners is a mergers and acquisitions advisor that originates strategic partnerships that generate the maximum lasting value for owners and investors in the creative and technology sector.

M&A: Trade Sale / Acquisition

Leveraging our unique blend of human and financial capital expertise, we connect entrepreneurs and investors across the globe to create the perfect cultural fit and innovative partnerships that form platforms for growth and build better businesses for the future.

SI Partners’ M&A advisory services include: Sale Mandates, Growth Partner Planning, Acquisition Research, Acquisition Mandates, Optimising for Acquisition, MBO/MBIs and Post-merger Integration.

1. Sale Mandates and Growth Partner Planning

We connect our sale mandate clients with the best possible growth partner for their business using our extensive network of new, emerging, emerged and heritage investors and acquirers combined with our deep understanding of the creative and technology M&A market. We also advise our clients how to build pre-emptive relationships with acquirers, and ultimately, how to achieve the maximum valuation for their business.

Our approach is to build a strategy focused on the growth aspirations of shareholders.

When seeking Growth Partners we do not identify businesses as “for sale”, rather one seeking a global Growth Partner. The approach identifies the growth drivers of the business and works with the leadership team to find suitable partners. We will help you to develop and articulate a Growth Plan, which can be shared with potential partners in order to explore synergies and opportunities.

2. Acquisition Research, Acquisition Mandates and Optimising for Acquisition

We specialise in marketing services, media and related technology sectors. Our best-in-class clients and transaction history demonstrate our extensive knowledge and deep understanding of these dynamic industries. We bring this experience to bear on acquisition mandates and acquisition research projects for clients looking to source the most relevant, innovative and contemporary businesses and talent in the creative and technology sectors.

3. Post-merger Integration

The sale process continues long after the transaction. Almost all deals are structured in such a way that realising the maximum value from a transaction is dependent on a successful post-merger integration and growth after sale.  SI Partners, through our vast transaction experience, have an intricate knowledge of the common integration challenges and the obstacles to achieving the true value of the business. Our post-merger integration service has been developed to release the full potential of the human, financial and brand capital in an acquired business to allow it to flourish in a new environment.
