Dedicated M&A Resource

Boost results. Add us to your team.

You are looking to grow through acquisition. Your finance team is already stretched. Finding deals is time-consuming and opportunities seem limited.

We can help.

Our team of experienced M&A professionals can unlock results for a fraction of the cost of employing financiers, researchers or analysts in house.

You effectively get your own dedicated outsourced M&A or Corporate Development function.​

​We can usually launch within two weeks, helping you develop or refine your strategy and drawing up a comprehensive target list.

We then reach out confidentially and discreetly to our intermediary network, as well as systematically approach targets directly - all while you concentrate on your core business.

How it Works

  • Strategy Development - we help you define acquisition criteria and plan a rigorous, systematic approach.
  • Expert research and analysis - who is selling and at what valuations? Where are our targets?
  • Deal origination - once targets identified, our origination programme will attract interest both on and off-market
  • Valuation and modelling - we support you in reaching a sensible valuation and will model the range of outcomes for your group/business post-acquisition.
  • Fund raising support - advisory and introductions to the right funders.
  • Full project management and advisory - working alongside you as an integral member of your team, drawing on our resource as required to make the deal happen.
  • Access to our network - we can introduce third party firms at the right time to cover due diligence, legals, tax, debt or equity and more.

Our Approach

No scatter gun approaches

It's all too common. Hopping from one opportunistic lead to the next but making no progress. Success is all about executing a systematic process. We will keep the work stream on track and give you the best chance of success.

Quality contact

From day one, we insist on principal to principal contact to ensure meaningful, straightforward responses. We do not represent you to potential targets using inexperienced juniors or call centres.
