PRIVATE COMPANY M&A ADVICE

Acquisitions

Working with clients to evaluate and execute their strategy to grow by acquisition is a key focus of CMGR.  Experience tells us that working together on the acquisition strategy, the search for and the evaluation of targets achieves optimum results.  A great deal only happens where the parties ‘fit’ and clear objectives on both sides are being satisfied. As your close adviser we will know your business, the people and what makes a ‘great deal’ for you.

On the practical side of identifying targets, making the approaches through to handling the negotiations and closing the deal we can provide full support or alternatively we can be highly flexible, fitting into your team to suit the circumstances.

Business Exits

We specialise in the sale of unquoted companies for owner managers, financial institutions and corporates.

Our objective is to obtain the best combination of price, form of consideration, deal structure and cultural compatibility within an agreed timescale. Through our research capability and network, we establish a short-list of known serious trade buyers and private equity investors with most to gain from acquiring your business. By creating a discreet but intensely competitive bidding situation, leading the negotiations and actively managing the sale process through to legal completion, we deliver the best possible deal, structured for maximum tax effectiveness, whilst maintaining strict confidentiality throughout.

Again, our ethos of working closely together during the growth phase of your business optimises the transition and planning towards an exit as it can be carefully planned in a discreet manner before entering a formal process.
