Mergers and adquisitions advisory process
Prepare the company to be acquired
Do you have a business plan? Are you ready for DD and data room? Do you have Initial valuation expectations? Are your financials in order? Start off on the right foot by knowing the answers to these questions. Preparing a stand alone and a synergic plan is the best way to show value to the investor. Financial modeling and valuation analysis are key at this stage. Additionally, we provide interim management and collaborate with the company’s preparation for the transaction.
Identify the right buyer for your company through an accurate analysis of the value creation drivers leveraged on your technology. Screen initial interest, including price, valuation, terms and structure. Where do you stand relative to competitors? Coordinate initial meetings, conference calls, and site visits. Filter investors and buyers into categories to match the right one to your company.
Marketing your business to several potential, interested investors
Do you have a message for each partner? What NDA´s are needed? Prepare the customized documentation to easily explain your business plan and the potential synergies after the acquisition.
Negotiating the sale
What is the valuation? Rise Letter of intent and help draft and negotiate definitive Stock Purchase Agreement (SPA) and related deal documentation negotiation. How do we control the due diligence? Coordinating lawyers and aligning stakeholders is fundamental to a successful exit. We are involved throughout the negotiation process, carrying on due diligence, and validating the deal by providing legal advice.
