Mergers & Acquisitions

Quarton has completed hundreds of M&A projects in over 30 countries and, together with Cowen Investment Banking, has executed over 200 banking transactions for clients globally in 2018.

We deliver strategic advice, thought leadership, entrepreneurialism, a vast industry network and the global reach of Cowen to clients in order to help them outperform.

Our M&A advisory approach is comprehensive

Beginning with the strategic positioning of the company; the systematic analysis and selection of potential investors or acquisition targets; management of robust sell-side processes with maximum competitive tension; coordination and management of the due diligence process; and finally, the negotiation of the purchase agreement. A successful transaction requires an organized and well-structured process. This also includes determining and mediating divergent interests of all stakeholders in a transaction.

We remove as much of the burden as possible during the transaction, so that our clients may continue to concentrate on their daily business.

Our M&A services include:

  1. Sell-side advisory to entrepreneur-owned middle market businesses on the sale to strategic buyers or private equity investors (Management Buyout / Leveraged Buyout)
  2. Sell-side advisory to private equity firms on the sale of their portfolio companies
  3. Sell-side advisory to publicly-traded or privately owned corporations on subsidiary divestitures
  4. Buy-side advisory to middle market businesses and private equity firms
  5. Strategic advisory arising from insolvency and/or bankruptcy proceedings

 


Succession Advisory to Entrepreneurs

Being an entrepreneur, you want to make sure your life’s work is in good, professional hands. This could be either family members or third-party managers. All types of succession strategies need to be well structured and consistently implemented, so it is often helpful to consider an outside perspective.

We analyze the situation and help you to implement the best solution possible for your company – here we incorporate the best interests of the stakeholders (property owners, management, employees, customers, deliverers, banks, investors, etc.) and work closely with the respective lawyers, tax advisors and auditors.

These typically complex transactions may include some or all of the following services:

Understanding Your Objectives:
First, we invest the time required to thoroughly understand our clients’ objectives. Then, we develop a custom strategy designed to meet them. Our deep sector expertise allows us to form our process strategy efficiently and effectively.

Valuation:
Extensive experience allows us to value a sale or acquisition with the highest degree of confidence, including valuations of private or public debt and equity securities.

Due-Diligence:
We conduct an in-depth business review to anticipate and solve problems, preserve confidentiality and improve client probability for success by eliminating 11th-hour surprises.

Identifying Prospects:
We use multiple resources to identify prospective buyers or sellers, including our proprietary deal management IT system that includes over 100 years of combined investment banking experience. Our process discovers prospects with strategic profiles and financial qualifications that match the objectives of our clients.

Document Preparation:
We will prepare all required documentation critical to the success of the transaction.

Process Selection:
We can help determine the optimum transaction process to maximize value. It may be a negotiated sale, a competitive auction or something in between.

Negotiations:
Our team brings a wealth of experience to the negotiating table. Quarton International’s professionals are adept at handling a wide range of complex issues, including indemnification and environmental issues.

Closing:
Without proper representation, the transaction progress can decelerate between the letter of intent and closing stages. At Quarton International, we remain actively involved until the transaction closes to our client’s satisfaction.
