Management Advisory

In today’s M&A environment, it’s not uncommon for businesses to experience more than one ownership transition. We work closely with public company boards, management teams, and shareholder groups to provide discreet, confidential advice to help achieve the most favourable outcomes in a transaction.

We offer a range of strategic and technical support to ensure proceeds are maximized, and where applicable, any rollover or reinvestment is made on the best possible terms for reinvestment. Our extensive global reach allows clients to access the most relevant financial sponsors and lenders for a given transaction, wherever they may be located.

For teams contemplating a management buy-out (MBO) – primary, secondary, tertiary or beyond – we act as a negotiation buffer between the management team and the shareholders while providing tactical and technical support around business planning and deal structuring.

Our independent, expert advice helps public company boards on all aspects of M&A and debt advisory transactions, including public-to-private transactions, responding to unsolicited approaches, providing advice on takeover offers, and creating a discreet competitive sale process for publicly listed companies.
