Acquisition candidates are often more receptive to discussing corporate and shareholder objectives with a skilled intermediary than with an acquirer, who may be a direct competitor. We approach prospective acquisition candidates with the highest degree of professionalism and confidentiality, gaining the trust and confidence needed to begin a meaningful dialogue about a potential sale of the candidate’s business.
Negotiating price and terms is a learned skill where quality investment bankers earn their fee. Maintaining pricing discipline is key to achieving appropriate returns and Alluence Capital’s financial modelling tells our clients exactly what they need to know to make critical pricing decisions. We value acquisition candidates businesses using discounted cash flow analysis, leveraged buyout analysis, M&A comparables from industry leading investment banking databases, and public trading multiples.
