M&A Advisory – The Truth
Introduction – The Problem, and the Opportunity, Owners and Boards
Middle market businesses and their shareholders, Boards and CEOs face the most turbulent times ever as well as the greatest opportunities in economic history. High caliber professional resources are required in order to take advantage of these opportunities, however, and all too often, this places leaders in a catch 22 position of not having sufficient capital, time, and energy to hire this talent on a full time basis along with the other competing needs of the business.
M&A transactions have become easier to contemplate due to vast available capital and debt sources and yet harder to bring to successful fruition due to the ever increasingly complexity in the business environment and the competing and conflicting interests between investors / buyers, sellers, and management.
The real deal in M&A is found by penetrating the smoke and mirrors of these competing interests and looking at both the growth and value aspects of the opportunity as well as a brutally realistic analysis of what resources will be required in order to realize above market returns and deliver value for all the shareholders in the required time-frame.
This allows taking advantage of M&A as the best path to realizing growth quickly, whether that growth is local, national, cross-border, international or global.
Solution – Consulting Advisory Board Services
An experienced, high caliber advisor who lives and breathes strategy, execution, and risk with years, if not decades, of experience in the C suite and in transactions who is empowered by these experiences to provide expert guidance and see through the vested interests. In a world where all funds claim to outperform, and in reality where many inexperienced funds lack management experience and operational wisdom, the urgent need to acid test claims that obtaining greater value from a business is as simple as a leveraged buy-out and nothing more is necessary to avoid disappointment, if not complete disaster.
Conclusion – Competitive Advantage for you
Given the high risk / high reward business and investment environments enjoyed today Boards must ensure they meet their fiduciary responsibility and take full advantage of current opportunities by having strong advisors with real world practical experience. We can readily and efficiently assist you in this regard, now, so that you understand all the aspects of Due Diligence, Q of E, Q of A, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Free Cash Flow etc. that set the stage for a successful transaction.
How we can help you
The time has come for you to step off the sidelines and take advantage of the opportunities for a deal; a defensive posture allowing your competitors to outmaneuver you and restructure your industry is extremely risky in this environment.
We work with you to develop clear goals and strategic timing and ensure you have the systematic plans, processes, and procedures to evaluate market opportunities:
• M&A Strategy & Capability
• Due Diligence
• Merger Integration & Bolt-ons
• Joint Ventures, Divestitures, Spin-offs and Carve-outs
• Performance Improvement
M&A is no longer an If question but a When question and we guide you up the path to create value from it. Maximum value is now most often obtained by a series of transactions to extract value from industry synergies, not just one deal, therefore advisors with the long term strategic view we provide are critical.
We also partner with you to manage the post-deal integration risk which is where most M&A efforts fail, often spectacularly.
International M&A opportunities should be taken advantage of and there are more every day. We have years of expertise in global and international transactions with further specialization in Latin America.

An experienced, high caliber, CFO that saves you and your organization money; much more affordable that an employee serving as full-time CFO (immediate savings) who will control and reduce inefficiencies and costs (intermediate savings) as well as reduce risks (strategic savings).
Also much more affordable than having a Big 4 partner or team or top tier management consulting firm – as well as more available, hands-on, and flexible for smaller and mid-sized companies.
Auditors are not managers nor executives. Though their advice is invaluable they cannot take a management role, not even temporarily.
A seasoned CFO who has been tempered by multiple real world challenges can very quickly step in as a financial leader as needed – whether for days or weeks per month or quarter. And the fractional CFO is available virtually as physical space is limited often at high growth companies and start-ups.
Very often a fractional CFO is as affordable to a business as a full time Controller while providing strategic value that even a strong Controller cannot.
A fractional CFO is your practical solution to the problems and risk posed by an incomplete, young, small, new, or otherwise challenged finance and accounting team. This CFO provides financial stewardship as needed.
The fractional CFO also serves as an independent and objective member of senior management with no hidden nor old agendas providing a fresh clean view focused on results. A new financial leader demonstrates the highest level of professionalism as the standard for the department. While aiding the CEO in providing clarity and practicality in the evaluation of existing plans and the evolution or development of needed policies, procedures & processes.
A very reasonable minimum monthly fee guarantees our clients we will have capacity for them, and that we are thinking on their behalf contiuously, not only when there is an obvious need.
