Buy-Side Advisory Process
During the buy-side M&A advisory process, Growthink Capital will:
1. Develop an Acquisition Strategy
The first step is to arrange an initial consultation with Growthink Capital’s team of experienced mergers and acquisitions professionals. During this consultation, we will discuss your specific situation, strategic goals, and ambitions and determine whether our services are a good fit for your needs.
2. Identify Targets
With an acquisition strategy and your target criteria in hand, we will then work with you to identify and source potential companies.
3. Coordinate with Capital Providers
Many buy-side processes get bogged down/fail to close because of a mismatch between the pricing/deal expectations of a target company and the willingness/ability of a buyer to meet and finance those terms. A key differentiator in Growthink Capital’s buy-side approach is to coordinate in parallel with capital providers (debt, equity, and seller-based) to structure a financeable deal very early in the deal process.
4. Manage and Drive Deal Closing
Beyond financing considerations, the other dynamic that leads to failure in a potential transaction is the detailed diligence and deal closing process. Growthink Capital leverages decades of extensive experience to uncover as soon as possible the diligence areas most likely to derail a deal closing and to address them upfront before extensive time and energy has been invested by all parties.
We take very seriously the two truisms that “time kills all deals” and “often the best deals are the ones you do not do” and at all times we protect and conserve the scarce and valuable resources of our buy-side clients through these naturally complex and exhaustive deal closing processes.
5. Facilitate Business Integration
After the deal closing, the process shifts to business integration and monetizing the forecasted synergies/efficiencies of the newly acquired business. While especially true in rollup scenarios, any successful merger or acquisition requires as much time, attention, and expertise be paid and invested in the post-transaction integration as in the deal closing process itself. Growthink Capital investment banking professionals work closely with our buy-side clients through the transition and integration process. As always, the buy-side goal is to not simply acquire a business but to see that acquired business truly thrive.
