Transaction Services

We deliver advisory services during all stages of a transaction:

Pre-acquisition

Financial due diligence – independent financial review of a target for a potential investor, aimed at identifying risk areas, which may impact on investor’s decision and valuation.

NOI review and testing (for real estate business) – specialised due diligence for targets in the real estate business, aimed at verification of net operating income of a target estate.

SPA review (from financial risk perspective) – specialised advice on SPA negotiations regarding protection of the investor against financial risks, in particular those identified during due diligence.

Preliminary due diligence – this service is offered largely to our PE clients in the early stage of an investment process. We provide a high-level financial and business analysis of a potential target in order to facilitate the Fund’s decision whether or not to engage more resources into the project.

 


Post-acquisition

Management accounts – a comprehensive review of internal controlling function of a portfolio company (including quality and adequacy of financial available information, key functions, and information systems), followed by recommendations and finally implementation of changes in order to achieve the desired level and quality of management reporting for owners / management board.

Interim due diligence – interim financial review of a portfolio company during a financial year, including analysis of YTD performance versus budget and prior year, identification and explanation of drivers, and variances. Such a review enables the shareholder to better prepare the company for a planned exit.

Independent business review – independent financial and business review for a financing bank. This service enables the bank to understand reasons behind financial difficulties of a debtor and, through analysis of financial projections (often supported by a restructuring plan), to assess its ability to service the debt in future.

 


Sell-side advice

Vendor assistance – preparation of companies for their disposal, including enhancing the quality of information to be provided to potential investors (e.g. reconciliation, and verification of financial data), and advise on the scope of information to be disclosed.

Financial vendor due diligence – independent financial review of a company which is put on sale. The vendor’s report, which is our deliverable, is intended to be presented to the prospective buyers as a reliable source of information in order to limit the extent of their due diligence.

Interim management – temporary participation in management of portfolio companies.

 

Valuations and financial modelling

We offer wide range of valuation and financial modelling services:

Valuations

Valuation of businesses (companies, capital groups, carve-outs) – independent estimate of the fair value for the purposes of transactions, management, reporting, for fulfilling formal or tax requirements, for finance providers etc.

Valuation of brands, trademarks, client portfolios and other intangible assets – independent estimate of the fair value for the purpose of contributions in kind, tax optimisations, allocation of the purchase price, etc.

Impairment tests – regular (e.g. in case of goodwill) or occasional (when circumstances point to it) estimation of impairment of assets’ value, that are compulsory according to the accounting standards.

Valuation of investments and financial assets – estimation of assets value for the purposes of their introduction to the accounting ledgers or on balance sheet dates.

Valuation of stock option programs – estimation of value on the balance sheet date and support in proper accounting in accordance with various accounting standards.


 

Financial modelling and preparation of business plans

Financial models – dynamic financial models including financial projections for the purpose of a business disposal or acquisition, new financing, restructuring or for internal purposes (e.g. budgeting, costs controlling) with an agreed upon level of details, reflecting the specifics of the company and the business model.

Business plans and evaluation of investment projects – strategic documents presenting conditions and expected results of projects realisation. They can be used for internal (e.g. specification of strategy and monitoring) and external (e.g. as a requirement for obtaining financing or grants / subsidies) purposes.

Our standards

Timeliness

We realise how dynamic, and diverse transaction processes are, and how important it is to stick to the agreed deadlines. Our response is a hands-on approach, close cooperation with the client, and immediate communication of any major issues arising from our analyses.

Confidentiality

We guarantee our clients absolute confidentiality of sensitive information.

Accuracy

Our reports are issue-focused, clear, and comprehensive, although we at the same time subscribe to the philosophy that “less is more”. Our reports form reliable basis on which the client is able to take rational decisions regarding the potential transaction (the “go” or “no go” decisions) and bid price.

Competence

Our project teams consist of transaction veterans. Partners are engaged across all stages of the process, taking active part in the field work, report writing, and client interactions.

Exclusivity

We offer our clients full exclusivity on a transaction: we never serve multiple clients on the same, competitive deal.

Flexibility and involvement

We guarantee unrestricted availability and dedication of our team. We are open to individual needs of our clients, and their comments or suggestions are continuously applied during our work. Moreover, our support is not limited to preparation of the report. We can support our clients with our experience and knowledge until the very closing of a deal.

Independence

We do not engage in situations of conflict of interest, so we do not work on a success fee basis, to avoid any bias or prejudices in presenting our conclusions.
