The considerable experience and broad skill set of the Spectrum team enables us to target and create acquisition led growth opportunities for our clients. The key starting point is for us to develop a detailed understanding of a client’s business, its markets, its prospects and the rationale for strategic acquisitions. To complement our client's own knowledge and analysis we can utilise our dedicated research capability alongside our wide contacts base and sector knowledge to produce a shortlist of potential acquisition targets.
We work closely with our clients to build a model to assess acquisition targets in a consistent and commercial manner. This involves the identification of suitable business valuations and advising on appropriate deal structures, including raising equity capital and/or debt if required.
We are skilled and experienced at initiating dialogue with target businesses in a confidential way on behalf of our clients and building rapport with vendors to deliver keenly priced and well thought through acquisitions. In keeping with the Spectrum director led approach and ethos, we also deliver hands on, added value support throughout every step of the process, culminating not just in legal completion but, where appropriate, advice and input on the subsequent and critically important integration process.
“Spectrum were instrumental in our negotiations and excelled in their support in all aspects of the deal. Their expertise and depth of knowledge on debt financing, company structure and accountancy helped Clarendon secure excellent terms and a smooth transaction. Communication through all of the teams' experts was seamless, reliable and consistent. The immediate post deal support has assured us that we chose the perfect team to guide us through our first acquisition.”Julian Cooper, Managing Director of Clarendon
