Buy-Side Advisory Services

Silvergrove represents middle market companies in buy-side transactions. Increasingly, middle market companies are pursuing acquisitions to remain competitive. Well executed acquisitions can help middle market companies expand their product offerings, diversify their customer base, and extend their geographic reach. Well executed acquisitions can also help middle market companies achieve scale and meet shareholder expectations for growth and profitability. Many middle market companies which have been successful managing the organic growth of their businesses do not have experience executing acquisition strategies. Further, acquisitions can be time intensive, consuming valuable management resources and distracting management teams from their core responsibilities. Silvergrove provides middle market companies sophisticated buy-side expertise and experience. We assist middle market companies in executing successful acquisitions while allowing their management teams to remain focused on the operation of their businesses.

Our buy-side engagements range from representing middle market companies in negotiations with a particular acquisition target to researching and identifying acquisition opportunities for private equity portfolio companies. We assist our clients in contacting acquisition candidates; evaluating strategic and financial information on acquisition candidates as a basis for valuation; conducting comprehensive due diligence on acquisition candidates’ businesses and operations; and preparing and negotiating offer letters, term sheets, purchase agreements and all ancillary documents required for closing a transaction. We also have the capability to assist our clients in negotiating and securing third party financing for acquisitions. Our singular focus in buy-side engagements is to assist our clients in acquiring companies on the most attractive terms possible to meet their long-term strategic and financial objectives.
