Using our extensive databases and industry experience, we conduct broad target searches and help our clients evaluate a limited number of pre-screened candidates. We make the process more efficient by initiating contact with targets, screening them, and performing initial due diligence.
Brookwood advises management teams in purchasing businesses that they manage. This advice typically includes valuing the business, structuring a transaction that is attractive to management and raising the debt and equity capital required to purchase the business.
Valuation, Structuring and Negotiation
Brookwood advises clients regarding valuation, transaction structure and negotiations for prospective acquisitions. Our market knowledge and negotiating assistance is invaluable, especially when an intermediary is representing a seller.
If the acquisition requires financing — in a management buyout, for example — Brookwood assists in determining the appropriate capital structure and raises the required capital to complete the transaction.
Brookwood has been particularly effective representing internationally-based businesses in acquisitions of U.S. companies. Whether our client has extensive U.S. operations or none, we can tailor our services to be a traditional buy-side banker or a complete outsourced corporate development solution.
