Mergers & acquisitions are an attractive and potentially lucrative option for many companies. For the buyer, a successful acquisition often represents a quicker, less expensive and less risk-intensive method of growth. And for the seller, a successful sale can provide owners with a way to maximize shareholder value and serve as a viable exit strategy.
Evans & Evans specializes in helping execute buy-side and sell-side mergers & acquisitions, and we have a strong reputation for not only bringing together buyers and sellers but helping both sides arrived at a completed and satisfying conclusion. In some cases, our role is that of an independent advisor where we provide our client with valuation, due diligence and corporate financing services. In other cases, we serve as an advocate for one party and are closely involved in the transactional process. In both cases, we help our clients develop an acquisition and sales strategy that emphasizes the right price, reducing risk and closing in a timely and cost-effective manner.
Whether acting on behalf of the buyer or the seller, Evans & Evans helps companies at all stages in the sales or acquisition process. Among the services Evans & Evans can provide are to:
- Develop strategic objectives
- Conduct risk analyses
- Develop sales or acquisition criteria
- Identify, screen and solicit possible targets
- Determine value and conduct due diligence
- Develop post-transactional strategies
- Negotiate and structure the deal
- Manage the closing
Evans & Evan’s mergers & acquisitions experts also help companies avoid many of the obstacles commonly associated with sales and acquisitions. We have extensive experience working with buyers to ensure that their acquisition targets are not overvalued and that post-transaction integration does not result in a loss of operational productivity. Similarly, our mergers and acquisitions experts have helped sellers avoid “underselling” their companies and have helped advise them on the forms of consideration most appropriate to their personal financial situations.
