Mergers & Acquisitions

Exclusive Sales

Selling companies is the foundation of Periculum’s business. Our focus and experience allows us to provide a superior transaction experience.

When representing sellers we take a discrete approach, working hard to find the best buyer – weighing valuation and fit, based on the client’s priorities. The world does not need to know your company is for sale. But the right people need to have the right information at the right time. That’s our job. And our long list of satisfied clients can attest that we do it well.

No matter the transaction type, Periculum helps its clients maximize value. Transaction pricing is clearly one of the most important components of value, but there are other aspects that distinguish one offer from the next. We help our clients obtain the best possible price, while negotiating transaction terms and structure that enhance stakeholder value and mitigate forward risk.

  • Review strategic alternatives and develop the most effective path to maximize shareholder value
  • Analyze the value of the company and determine the types of buyers who will pay the highest price
  • Identify and screen potential buyers
  • Prepare confidential informational materials about the company
  • Negotiate terms and conditions with interested buyers
  • Assist with documentation and closing of the transaction

 

ACQUISITIONS

Periculum leverages its expertise selling companies to support the buy-side efforts of both private and small-cap to mid-cap public companies.

There are issues of structure, valuation, strategy, due diligence, and a myriad of unknown hurdles involved in a transaction. It is not a simple process, and an improperly executed combination can destroy the value of a transaction. Periculum helps assure that the value in a combination is realized through a smooth process and close.

  • Prepare strategic and economic analysis of proposed transactions
  • Analyze pre- and post-merger valuations
  • Determine appropriate capital structure
  • Assist with due diligence
  • Arrange or assist with transaction financing
  • Provide ongoing strategic advice

We begin with an assessment of company value and the competitive environment in which management wants to gain control.

Periculum will continue to assist management beyond closing, helping guide the company toward its strategic goals.
