ClearThink Capital acts as your outsourced M&A advisor, guiding you through the entire M&A process.
Although our role on M&A Advisory and Finance transactions can vary, it is generally comprised of four parts.
Through due diligence, we learn about our client so we can speak intelligently to potential merger partners, we remediate any items that could cause issues with a merger or acquisition, and we verify the validity of the information presented.
Introductions and Search
We use our extensive network, proprietary target searching processes and experience to identify and introduce our clients to potential acquisition targets that align with their criteria.
Process Management & Structuring
Our team works closely with our clients to manage the entire M&A process, from initial negotiations to closing, while structuring the transaction to maximize benefits and minimize risks
Due Diligence of Target
We conduct a comprehensive analysis of the target company, including financial, operational, and legal due diligence, to ensure that our clients have a complete understanding of the target before closing the deal.
ClearThink Capital’s M&A team is led by our Chief Executive Officer Bob Brown. Prior to forming ClearThink Capital, Bob practiced as a Securities and M&A attorney, working on over $100B+ of merger and acquisition transactions.
Bob worked with companies from News Corporation, Fox, Tele-Communications, Comcast, Liberty Media, and other large cap companies to small startups.
Bob has assembled a team of M&A experts including former investment bankers, attorneys, and others to advise our clients through their M&A transactions.
M&A Finance takes many forms, including:
Understanding the appropriate financing for an acquisition requires extensive experience in the structuring and execution of M&A transactions, as both are intertwined. Ideally, M&A structures satisfy particular client objectives, whether providing significant tax deferrals or minimizations, sheltering of income, etc., while minimizing acquisition costs, whether in the form of interest, equity participation or both.
Our ability to review and analyze financial projections allow us to advise as to the optimal structure to permit repayment of financing without undue burden.
ClearThink Capital guides companies through their acquisitions.
