The CorFiM&A team has vast experience in initiating and executing strategic and value-enhancing acquisitions for clients seeking to expand and develop.
We use a variety of research tools to gain a thorough understanding of our clients’ acquisition criteria for buy-side or sell-side M&A, activities and target markets. Through creative and lateral thinking to challenge our clients’ ideas on acquisitions and suggest complementary opportunities that a client may not have considered.
Our business network, built up over the last 25 years in the EU, the Far East and the Middle East, as well as our partnerships with other M&A platforms, allow us to offer client service throughout Asia, Japan, the US, the UK and the rest of Western Europe.
Our approach is highly proactive and we place a major emphasis on opening new doors throughout networking. This allows us to create off-market negotiated opportunities that clients may not have considered. We always focus on building effective professional relationships with potential targets, which we pass on to our clients. This approach maximises the chances of a successful transaction and often helps our clients avoid a costly and time-consuming auction process. It also minimises distraction, which is especially vital in people-based service businesses, a sector in which our team has a strong record.
We often initiate acquisitions that broaden our client’s service offering, open up a new service line or take the company into a new market or niche. We maintain strict confidentiality throughout the process.
