Making informed decisions is just smart business
Buying, selling, expanding or restructuring a business is a major milestone for any organization and its stakeholders. We work closely with entrepreneurs, financial institutions and private equity groups providing them with fully integrated transaction advisory services. You can rely on Richter to bring a professional, practical and effective approach to your transaction.
Complex and potentially high-risk endeavours require serious talent. Our dedicated team of transaction support consultants, with their diverse industry and professional backgrounds, helps you realize the greatest value from your transactions. We take an active, hands-on approach and apply innovative solutions throughout the transaction process and as a result have successfully completed many complex transactions for our clients.
Accessing debt and equity markets
Our vast network of contacts is useful in sourcing various forms of debt and equity. We can secure project, expansion and turnaround financing as well as design innovative borrowing and corporate recapitalizations. We also use private and public equity markets to help our clients find the resources they need.
We work with you through every step of the divestiture process. We conduct thorough research to determine the appropriate market value for your business. We prepare information memoranda and detailed business plans as we identify prospective buyers and potential investors. We negotiate on your behalf and assist in the successful completion of your transaction.
When the time is right to sell, we also perform reverse/seller due diligence to help you prepare for a sale. Our process prevents unanticipated surprises during buyer due diligence.
Traditional due diligence focuses on the company and its financial issues. Our enhanced process includes an operational component that provides added insight into the financial information that potential acquirers are concerned about.
The due diligence process is more than a financial review; it is a tool for reliable financial forecasting and planning a sustainable business future. We evaluate earning potential, analyze the quality of assets, prepare financial models and develop industry comparables and corporate positioning.
We can put a dedicated team on the ground as fast as you need one, with professionals who bring you a wide range of integrated services.
Mergers and acquisitions
Our team performs targeted searches and structures leveraged and management buyouts. We have experience arranging strategic alliances and determining appropriate pricing and value.
Richter’s team of chartered business valuators and accredited senior appraisers support the strategic decision-making process with independent and objective business valuation advice in the context of mergers and acquisitions, divestitures, fairness opinions, management buy-outs, corporate reorganizations, stakeholder dispute and purchase price allocations.
Post acquisition integration
We understand the importance of developing a post acquisition integration plan before the transaction is completed. Subsequently, we support you in the implementation of the plan, in order to rapidly seize the deal synergies while mitigating the integration risks.
