MERGERS AND ACQUISITIONS

As independent corporate buyers advocates BBA has positioned itself in a unique position where it can direct corporate sales to specific qualified buyers and investors.

BBA has an excellent relationship with many Private Equity Firms and Family Office investors that are keen on opportunities for acquisitions, mergers, capital raising, expansion and debt financing,

In many cases, these firms are keen to work alongside founders and management to achieve growth opportunities, sometimes with a minority shareholding and a long term vision.

Private Equity Firms and Family Office investors have their own charter as to what they will invest in and to what amount. Some firms have a $20m cap whilst others exceed $500m. Some require a majority shareholding and others will position themselves with a minority holding.

The firm’s current investment portfolio also has a significant impact on how they will view investment or acquisition opportunities. In some cases a bolt on business may be an ideal opportunity for growth and in other cases not of interest as it’s a direct competitor to an existing investment in their portfolio.

Knowing these firms, knowing what these firms are looking for in terms of industry sector and to the extent of their investment and equity requirements is where BBA can help.
