We are a Middle Market M&A firm with the industry expertise, research capabilities, and highly developed network of national and international contacts to provide a solid base for initiating transactions. We also have special middle market expertise in identifying and evaluating potential sellers, buyers, and partners.
FOCUS Partners are experienced in all phases of the M&A process and can provide services including market analysis, financial analysis, capitalization structure, due diligence, memorandum preparation, structuring of transactions, negotiating, and closing financial terms tailored to the clients need and capital market demands.
In a middle market merger transaction FOCUS Partners help clients restructure their businesses and assist clients in developing realistic plans. Since these activities are strategic and have long-lasting consequences, it is critical that the initial analysis conducted by the firm be objective and thorough.
In a middle market acquisition transaction representing potential acquirers, the firm provides assistance in the initial strategic planning stages by helping the client identify the best targets and options. We assist our middle market M&A clients in evaluating their alternative strategies including internal growth, merger, acquisition, and/or strategic partnering. FOCUS Partners put their contact network to work on the client’s behalf, quietly and discreetly, in order to preserve confidential relationships and reputations.
When representing sellers in a middle market merger or acquisition, the firm assists its clients in operating from a position of strength. By working closely with the client’s senior management team, we assist in developing a business plan and a forecast that provides an optimal valuation. FOCUS Partners will discreetly contact only selected qualified buyers in order to maximize price, improve terms, and quickly complete the M&A transaction.
If the transaction requires additional capital, FOCUS can access our extensive network of equity and debt sources. Because our Partners are all highly experienced, “hands-on” operating veterans, we also can assist with the post-M&A integration process.
