Buy-side acquisition advisory
Whether we are mandated by companies, private equity houses or management teams, Zolfo Cooper has substantial experience in assisting our clients with sourcing and completing acquisitions. We can assist at every stage of the acquisition life-cycle: from using our extensive contacts and knowledge of our specialist sectors to find potential acquisitions, advising on appropriate values and structures for acquisition bids, arranging acquisition finance for buyers (debt and equity), through to negotiating and completing the final deal.
We recognise that a poorly negotiated acquisition can have a significant negative impact in the long run on the acquirer. To avoid such risks, we leverage our extensive experience of, for example, structuring complex earn-outs and negotiating post-deal commercial relationships between acquirer, target and seller to ensure that the acquisition is as successful as possible in the long run.
