Identify more than a target – find your future partner.
Owners seeking to sell their business or plan for a future exit represents just one side of any transaction. In every M&A case, there is a buyer. At HORNE Capital, we help you curate the universe of prospective companies that may be a fit to help your company grow by acquisition, and then we execute a strategic approach to begin a dialogue with your future partner.
In addition to developing acquisition criteria, we help you identify, screen and evaluate potential acquisition targets. We also initiate preliminary contact to gauge the target’s interest without revealing you as the buyer.
Valuation and Offer Preparation
Our affiliation with a Top 25 CPA firm enables us to prepare a realistic and reliable valuation of qualified targets. From there, we assist in the preparation of a preliminary offer.
Our financial modeling, capital structure analysis and transaction structuring services help you structure a buyout arrangement that best addresses your financial, business and tax considerations.
FUNDING AND CLOSING
Step-by-step, we take you through the often complex process of negotiating deal terms, securing funding and closing the deal.
Our work doesn’t end at the transaction. We help you develop a post-transaction integration plan focused on minimal business disruption and seamless transition. This includes a thorough analysis of business, technology, cultural, personnel and operational issues.
“Finding the right fit is as important as getting the right price. HORNE Capital helps you do both. We ensure that acquisition targets are aligned with your business strategy, then help you arrive at a price, funding and terms that work for you.”
