Home BTG Advisory logo

Acquiring another business can provide growth and business development opportunities, with significant potential upside. We specialise in advising companies on acquisition-driven growth, whether the target has already been identified or a target search is required.

BTG Advisory’s corporate finance specialists excel in acquisitions, from owner-managed businesses through to large corporations. Our experts instil confidence in our clients to pursue acquisitions which deliver value on both sides. We prioritise assessing the acquisitive company’s strengths and weaknesses to determine suitable target criteria.

In the process, the required comprehensive due diligence is arranged across financial, tax, commercial, operational, regulatory, IT and cybersecurity operations as required to ensure that a full understanding of the target business is gained. We project manage the deal through to successful completion, coordinating with stakeholders and liaising with counterparty advisers to ensure smooth negotiations and a coordinated process.

We have in-house resources to support business planning, financial modelling and deal structuring, as well as to source competitive, suitable finance through our close specialist lender relationships. We are also mindful of the time-consuming nature of acquisitions and aim to relieve pressure on our client’s management team throughout the process.
