Identification of potential acquisition targets highlighting the most suitable prospects that may not be active in the market
The targets, which are usually private/closed companies, can range in size from small high-technology businesses interested in development funding to large global businesses with shareholders seeking exits outside of floatation.
The Initial phase will be to identify a long-list that fits the profile outlined by the client but that usually falls into one of two categories: direct competitor business that has the same main business offering as the client but is active in alternative markets or an indirect competitor that has a different business offering but is active in the same markets as the client.
Uncover greater depth of information and detail and assess if the business is a viable target. At the conclusion of this phase, a more detailed report on the shortlisted companies will be prepared and presented for discussion and decision-making. This report will include data on the market, the competition and will assess both key personnel and management capabilities.
