The best combination of price,
Ours is a very diverse market with both buyers and sellers of every shape and size and there are many aspects to consider in achieving the best deal for you.
deal structure and cultural fit
Price is obviously a key factor: vendors will wish to optimise their value and acquirers are seeking to identify strong growth opportunities. These two aspirations are not necessarily incompatible and our experience in over 50 acquisitions/disposals enables us to identify well-aligned buyers and sellers.
The structure of any deal is perhaps equally important in unlocking value in the most timely, tax-efficient way possible for sellers and ensuring buyers pay a fair consideration with the potential to unlock a decent return on their investment.
For both parties, a strong cultural fit with common purpose and shared values will be crucial to creating a successful deal in the long-term, avoiding client and/or adviser attrition.
We will work alongside management in any merger or acquisition to reduce obstacles in day-to-day operations, providing support for the newly-merged business to maintain momentum and ensuring that a targeted growth opportunity can be made a reality.
