    Buy Side Services

Increasingly, public and private companies are resorting to acquisition related growth strategies as a springboard to increase their market share, expand their product suite, leverage cost economies of scale or to strengthen their company's overall competitive position.

Our buy side advisory services are customized to the needs and demands of our corporate and financial buyers. We begin by first understanding your acquisition growth strategy in expansion terms (complete with milestones, benchmarks and metrics). From there we focus on your product and service offerings, infrastructure needs, operating strategies, capital requirements, geographic targets, etc. The more we know about your strategy, the more effective we can be helping you execute a successfully integrated acquisition. Our comprehensive services include prospect identification, validation and solicitation, acquisition/target company valuation, deal and consideration structuring, pro-forma financial analysis and rationalization, letter of intent preparation, deal negotiation, and financial, operational and technological due diligence. Whatever an acquirer's objective is-- industry consolidation, product or service expansion, Decagon Partners has the knowledge, operating and transaction experience and expertise to assist you in realizing your objectives.

Whatever the size of the acquisition, it all begins with having a plan. The plan must extend from pre-acquisition planning, through acquisition to successful integration. The most strategic acquisition may be disastrous without thorough planning including integrating the acquired company into your current operations (see Decagon's Integration Services). Decagon Partners professionals possess extensive experience in both the areas of transactions and operations thereby creating a valuable resource in the formulation and execution of your acquisition program. Whatever your acquisition strategy may be, Decagon Partners leverages its FADE methodology and project management process combined with their knowledge, expertise and experience to help ensure that you are making an informed acquisition decision and one that fits with your Company's goals and objectives.

Management Buyouts

Often, your management team is your best prospect to purchase a business. However, the team often lacks the knowledge, capital and financial relationships to independently consummate a transaction. Decagon Partners will assist these management teams in the structuring and financing of a transaction while providing ownership the assurance that they received a fair, competitive value for the business.
