How we can help

M&A Sourcing involves creating deal flow for the client. This involves obtaining interested vendors from 3 angles 1) finding off-market opportunities through sourcing 2) finding on market opportunities through the broker networks and 3) finding both off-market and on-market opportunities through other networks. A target list is then drawn up.
