Evaluating Business Opportunities

An offering unique to LINK, our acquisition service delivers growth options for aspirational companies. Acquiring another enterprise can often help fast track growth in your own company, but it’s fraught with challenges. Some companies will look great on paper, but underneath may have severe limitations, be haemorrhaging money or won’t add up to a profitable purchase. When assessing potential mergers and acquisitions, the evaluation of a company will be a lengthy and thorough process. A specialist can teach you how to evaluate a company for purchase without overpromising, affecting stock values or affecting the day to day running of your business.

Working with our specialist team at LINK we will take you on a journey that could encompass 4 areas.

#1

Reviewing your existing operations and discussing whether growth by acquisition is the best alternative. Organic growth may also be a viable option, and in some cases, a better one in comparison.

#2

Determining the most significant opportunity for growth – vertical or horizontal integration, diversification, geographic expansion, synergies or economies of scale – many ways to create additional future cash flows.

#3

Desk and field research on companies – national or international – fitting into that criteria. Evaluating your business opportunities will be a crucial, and strategic, decision and should not be taken lightly.

#4

Project management of the sale transaction process – approaching potential sellers, negotiation and deal structuring and ensuring all financial, legal and due diligence specialists are efficient and timely.

Partnering with LINK

Without proper counsel, many companies do not have the knowledge to make the appropriate decisions necessary for acquisition. In other cases, businesses may have vetted a good addition but are inept when it comes to navigating the steps to purchase. When it comes to the acquisition of other companies, the possibility of a misstep is great. In order to traverse this complex scenario, we recommend engaging a specialist such as LINK to manage the transitional period. With our expertise, we remove some of the stress of the mergers and acquisitions process and allow you to focus on just the pieces that are most important to your company.

We can accept mandates that are fixed-fee, success-based or a mixture of the two. Regardless, our goal is to ensure that our professionalism and dedication to your growth opportunity surpasses your expectations.
