Expedite growth through inorganic integrations or just don’t miss out on new markets and opportunities. Those are usually drivers of buy-side mandates by either companies or private equity backed players to M&A advisors.
After a strategy discussion between the company and the advisor, there is a chance that the best growth option turns out being the acquisition of another company. This might be a competitor, a synergic player or even an up- or downstream integration (supplier or client).
A buy-side mandate usually starts with the identification of potential targets through market research and the advisors’ network. Once such potential targets are identified, the advisor proceeds to reach out to them, introducing the acquisition opportunity. In case of an interest to sell, the advisor shall support its client in evaluating the business and drafting a letter of intent. Negotiations will follow, and eventually a deal might come through.
We, at Maveria Advisory, are experienced in providing M&A buy-side services and remain available for informal talks about acquisition opportunities and strategy alternatives.
