MERGERS & ACQUISITION

WCA’s approach to M&A starts before
the opening of negotiations and
continues afer the deal is closed.
OUTRIGHT SALE

Selling your business will probably be the most significant business project you undertake. Therefore, it deserves superior project management and preparation. A detailed study of the business and our global network allows us to engage with the right potential buyers at the right time and in the right way to maximise value and achieve other shareholder and management objectives. This can mean immediate engagement with one or more buyers, or a longer period of preparation aimed at encouraging a pre-emptive offer from the best buyer.

In either situation, we work alongside shareholders and management teams to craft bespoke sale solutions for each strategic buyer and private equity investor. We then engage with these parties in the most appropriate manner to ensure buyer’s appetite and confidence in the business.

Our partner led approach then delivers best in class negotiation and execution, actively managing the sale process and maintaining competitive tension through to legal completion.

EXIT STRATEGY REVIEW

Our Exit strategy review comprises a detailed analysis of your business, assessing its qualities, value enhancers and specific areas to address ahead of a transaction. We consider these facets against the various exit options available, including a total or partial trade sale, a private equity transaction or a flotation.

As part of our review, we also undertake a comprehensive investigation of the global potential buyer population that will have the most strategic appetite to make an acquisition of your business.

Using the above analysis and information, and having understood the specific objectives of shareholders and management, we recommend the best exit strategy.
