M&A Strategic Advisory: Buy-Side Advisory | Sell-Side Advisory

Traditionally, M&A was the province of large corporations.  Established players worked with established players, motivated by both geographic and financial synergies.  However, as recent history has shown, both from a financial and strategic perspective, M&A is a crucial reality for IT Service companies of all sizes.  Indeed, having an M&A strategy – being prepared to acquire or to be acquired – is a managerial necessity.

As a strategic M&A advisory firm Lyndhurst Partners provides both buy-side and sell-side consulting services, offering clients a seasoned combination of industry knowledge, worldwide relationships and international experience.  Additionally, we apply our framework for a proven, efficient process that facilitates results.  As part of every strategic M&A engagement Lyndhurst Partners’ professionals:

Analyze: Document and analyze clients’ strategic objectives through our initial client review process.

Explore: Compile an initial candidate list leveraging established industry contacts, continuous industry research and a proprietary internal database.

Evaluate: Qualify potential candidates, benchmarking them against our clients’ specific strategic objectives.

Initiate: Initiate the process of mutual discovery and evaluation, introducing candidate companies through appropriate background information, conference calls, and face to face meetings; and educating candidate companies regarding the current client opportunity.

Execute: Provide continuous counsel regarding current public comparables and industry multiples, typical deal structures, and appropriate terms / conditions.  Support clients’ legal counsel and tax advisors in reviewing Letters of Intent and potential subsequent Definitive Agreements.

M&A engagements require an extraordinary level of corporate trust and personal discretion. As such, Lyndhurst Partners is committed to a strict corporate code of ethics and absolute integrity regarding standards of practice.  We take great care to ensure that corporate confidence is both established and maintained.
