Mergers & Acquisitions
Konsortium Capital’s merger and acquisition (“M&A”) advisory capabilities are one of the foundations of the firm’s history and success. Konsortium Capital’s professionals have extensive backgrounds in representing both buyers and sellers of companies across a wide spectrum of industries. Konsortium Capital has a strong track record of utilizing creatively providing buy or sell side advisory services tailored to our clients’ needs and goals. Konsortium maintains an extensive nexus of connections with active (public and private) strategic buyers and a multitude of financial buyers. We have consistently utilized these relationships in order to introduce our clients to the broadest range of potential buyers and sellers. This in turn gives our clients multiple options for a merger partner, usually at an above market multiple valuation for our sell-side transactions.
Merger and Acquisition Advisory Services:
- Buy-side and sell-side assignments
- Corporate divestitures and leveraged buyouts (LBOs)
- Management buyouts (MBOs) and ESOP buyouts
- Advising clients on their strategic merger or acquisition strategy
- Formulating a valuation range

We carefully analyze our client’s alternatives to determine when a sale, merger or acquisition meets our client’s objectives. Konsortium Capital always seeks to present to our client a full spectrum of alternatives, which can include: (1) a full or partial sale to current management, (2) a sale or merger with a public or private competitor, (3) an acquisition of a competing publicly held, private or family owned company, or (4) an acquisition by a private equity or hedge fund. We analyze both our client’s company as well as the acquirer or seller and evaluate both the financial and operational structure of both entities. In addition, we analyze in detail what result can be expected from a merger or acquisition transaction. This analysis allows our clients to fully understand the synergies (or the lack thereof) in a prospective merger long before it commits to a definitive strategy.
Creating and Increasing Value
Konsortium Capital seeks to create added value for our clients in any merger or acquisition. We believe that the process of doing so must begin with a careful analysis of the company’s financial, operational and market performance as well as its future potential. It is then essential to evaluate our client’s strengths and weaknesses in the context of the market in which it operates. Our goal is to create maximum shareholder value for our client in either a merger or acquisition and to produce a result, which either meets or exceeds our client’s expectations. Our professional qualifications and decades of experience in the financial analysis, structuring and negotiation of complex transactions have produced outstanding results for our clients over many years.
