On buy-side mandates, we help our client make its acquisition case. We then execute a solid screening in line with our client strategy, narrow down the target list after initial analysis and workshops with our client, and finally focus on a short list of targets. Hand in hand with our client, we value the targets and design creative offers, support the negotiation process and keep the timing.
More and more clients have already identified acquisition targets when they contact us. In those cases, we act as a go between.
In all cases we build the deal rationale and terms, and present the proposed acquisition with the CEO to the Board. We write the Letter of Intent, finalize the negotiation and run the whole transaction process until signing and closing.
