Unlocking value while keeping you on track to achieve your strategic goals
Whether you’re considering M&A to drive growth for your business, are building a business case for a major decision or are evaluating exit opportunities, our team is dedicated to gaining a deep understanding of your organization and its needs and goals. When it’s time to make a pivotal business decision, we’ll assist you in planning a sequence of recommended next steps, while considering the people, processes and technology you’ll need to implement them.
We will work with you to define how you can best employ M&A, in alignment with corporate strategy, to drive profitable growth and enable you to compete effectively. Knowing where you want to compete and how you plan to win is essential to defining an effective path and identifying strategic acquisition targets. Where relevant, we work closely with our other service lines, including tax and legal services, to provide additional insights that inform your M&A strategy.
In a CDD, we test the robustness of a target company’s claims about its position in the marketplace and hypotheses about future growth potential. We bring insights that inform your investment thesis, deal valuation and post-deal value creation plan by conducting primary research and combining it with secondary sources, covering the target company’s markets, customers, suppliers, and competitors.
Economic uncertainty creates major challenges for many companies in the form of prospects for falling activity, reduced profitability and weaker liquidity.
We assist with solid insight and presentation of basic commercial, financial and operational matters. It provides a basis for action plans and maintaining trust and credibility with important stakeholders through periods of weak results and poor liquidity.
We can help you find buyers, make your business more attractive and negotiate the best possible terms for your business’ sale.
We help shareholders of small and medium-sized, private businesses secure maximum value when they decide to exit. As an owner-manager you may be selling the business that you have worked a lifetime to build. As an equity investor you may be selling an important asset in your portfolio. It is therefore vital that you choose an advisor that understands the unique pressures of running a private business, as well as the motivations and expectations surrounding your business sale.
We can help to manage the entire sale process, including:
- identifying relevant buyers on a global basis who have the strategic rationale and capability to undertake a deal;
- helping to prepare your business to maximise its attractiveness to the chosen pool of potential buyers;
- creating competitive tension between the potential buyers;
- project managing what can be a complicated process to achieve the right result quickly, efficiently whilst protecting the business; and
- leading (with you) the negotiations to achieve the best possible terms
We will ensure that we as a team remain in control of the sale process, from start to finish.
We work in close collaboration with the Nordic RSM offices and are often involved in international transactions, both with private equity and industrial clients. Through the RSM network, we have access to broad global expertise and additional capabilities. We can therefore put together teams across national borders when the transactions require this.
