Executing a transaction is only one part of the formula for a sound acquisition. The post-transaction period has a tremendous impact on the ultimate success of your acquisition. You need someone who won’t walk away after the closing of the deal. Our HORNE360°℠ approach provides you with the support and services you need to more easily integrate the new acquisition into your existing operations.
We go beyond traditional buy-side services. Our HORNE360°℠ approach is designed to take you through the post-transactional phase to a successful transition of ownership. Our buy-side services include:
We work with your leadership team to analyze business value drivers, formulate options for growth and ensure that your growth strategy and business strategy are aligned.
In addition to developing acquisition criteria, we help you identify, screen and evaluate potential targets for acquisition. We also initiate preliminary contact to gauge the target’s interest without revealing you as the buyer.
Valuation and Offer Preparation
After preparing a valuation of a qualified target, we assist in the preparation of a preliminary offer.
Our financial modeling, capital structure analysis and transaction structuring services help you arrive at a structure that best addresses your financial, business and tax considerations.
Funding and Closing
Step-by-step, we take clients through the process of negotiating deal terms, securing funding and closing the deal.
We understand the work doesn’t end at the transaction. We help you plot a successful post-transaction integration with the goal of minimizing disruption and facilitating a more seamless transition. This includes providing a thorough analysis of business, technology, cultural, personnel and operational issues.
