Companies, like yours, typically complete acquisitions with the goal of growing and responding to their customers’ needs more quickly. Through acquisitions, you can also access adjacent markets as well as diversify your customer base.
There are various alternatives for financing an acquisition, depending on the acquiring company’s situation and goals, and the acquisition finance structure can include a mix of funding sources. The most common alternatives for financing an acquisition include swapping stocks, cash, senior debt financing, mezzanine financing, leveraged buyouts, or equity.
We have experience working with companies of all sizes (EBITDA of US$8 million to sky’s-the-limit) from a range of industries to implement a customised acquisition financing solution that meets the objectives of management teams.
