Most importantly of all, we don’t sit on the fence. We know you want a definitive answer. If you’re asking questions like “should we buy this business” or “is this the right technology to invest in”, we’ll tell you what we think and back it up with robust rationale and practical knowledge.
Investors who are looking at M&A or capex projects in our key practice areas ask for help with:
Market Scanning and Knowledge
We give investors advice on market opportunities and compelling trends to keep your knowledge current. If you are looking to invest in companies in any of our practice areas, or you have an existing vehicle looking for M&A opportunities, we constantly scan the market, giving us the know-how to build target lists for acquisitions.
We work closely with you to identify the key criteria for your targets and give you our honest appraisal of their suitability and quality.
Diligence on Acquisitions
We offer both Commercial Due Diligence and Technical Due Diligence on potential acquisitions. Our deep knowledge of our sectors means we can look at all the commercial dynamics, including competitive positioning, differentiation, validation of synergy rationale, product relevance and go-to-market.
Our engineering know-how means we can go all the way down the value stack into technical matters like quality of architecture, technology validation, and so forth.
Business Case Development
As well as M&A projects, many investors ask for our help to build business cases for large capex investments in new technology areas. This includes validating key financial assumptions, vendor selection, product development and assessment of the options available. Often, this involves a “buy versus build” consideration as well as return-on-investment and break-even analyses.
If you are looking to deploy capital in new equipment, we’re here to guide you.
