BTG Advisory’s corporate finance specialists are recognised as one of the UK’s leading teams, with strong expertise in acquisitions. We use our market knowledge and commercial expertise to identify targets and execute deals for companies ranging from owner-managed businesses right through to large corporations.
The proof of a successful merger or acquisition is when value can be seen on both sides, and this is a key consideration when we establish target criteria. Acquiring a target which can also profit from joining the client business makes acquisitions more economically viable, while buying attributes that are already in place may not make economic sense. We also strongly recommend that culture and personalities are considered, with a view to post-acquisition integration.
BTG Advisory’s extensive international market knowledge offers a further reason for clients to come on board with us: simply sifting through the acquisition opportunities that are being marketed by other advisors and brokers will only give access to a small portion of potential targets, and the process may become competitive. We prefer to take a proactive approach to research off-market opportunities to help find the right target at the right price.
Once a deal has been agreed we have all the necessary in-house resources to take care of business planning and financial modelling if required. We can also assist in finding financial backers for our clients, thanks to the close relationships we have with a wide variety of acquisition funders. Our full service offering – from target identification through funding to extensive due diligence and completion – is a compelling proposition for any company considering making an acquisition.
