Mergers, Acquisitions and Divestitures

Acquiring or selling a business can be a long and challenging process – there is no "typical" transaction. NorthLink provides the expertise to deal with the complexities, the time commitment required of the process and the objectivity necessary to provide helpful advice. Let us guide you through the transaction process.

Mergers and Acquisitions
NorthLink professionals work with clients to understand their corporate and shareholder objectives and determine the appropriate strategic alternatives. Prior to embarking on a buy-side advisory assignment, we analyze clients' operations, financing needs, the competitive landscape and the potential avenues for growth.

When we advise entrepreneurs about the potential acquisition of another company or certain assets, our services include evaluating potential acquisition targets, providing valuation and capital structure analysis and recommending financial and strategic alternatives. We also advise as to the timing, structure, financing and pricing of a proposed acquisition and assist in negotiating and closing the acquisition.

Divestitures
For every sell-side mandate, our goals are to maximize net proceeds, work efficiently toward transaction completion and achieve the best possible terms for our clients.

When we advise business owners who are contemplating the sale of their company, our services address each stage of the process. During the preparatory stage, this includes evaluating financial and strategic alternatives with respect to a sale, advising on the appropriate sale process, confirming valuation expectations, preparation of all marketing materials and identification of potential buyers. During the execution stage, this includes contacting qualified acquirers, disseminating the information necessary to facilitate buyer due diligence, supervising a competitive process, negotiating the terms of a transaction and assisting through the legal documentation phase.
