BUY SIDE PROCESS:
1) Strategic Objectives
Our process begins with a meeting and conversation with the management to understand target acquisition goals. Another goal at this phase of the process is for both parties to determine if moving forward would be a mutually beneficial step to take. Common ground, trust and chemistry will form the foundation of the working relationship going forward.
Once we have agreed on mutual goals and expectations, the client is invited to enter in to full engagement with us. During the engagement phase, Alliance M&A Advisors conduct comprehensive search to ensure best targets are identified, narrow list to candidates with greatest strategic value and reach out to targets to gather more information and gauge level of interest.
