Mergers & Acquisitions
Petsky Prunier's M&A practice is focused, primarily, on exclusive sale mandates – frequently on behalf of the owners of privately held businesses, their boards or investors. Other sell-side engagements include corporate divestitures, mergers, leveraged recapitalizations and joint ventures. In each case, we work with our clients to achieve shareholder and strategic objectives, while maximizing value.
Petsky Prunier has access to a broad and deep network of both strategic buyer and majority investor relationships across our banking universe. Given our volume of current engagements, we are able to maintain ongoing dialogue with investors and potential buyers, both those that are located squarely within our industries of focus and those that are in adjacent industries looking for exciting growth opportunities. Our outreach encompasses potential parties in North America, as well as internationally, as appropriate, to maximize the outcome for each engagement.
Private Equity Coverage
Petsky Prunier maintains relationships with hundreds of private equity firms. We engage in ongoing dialogue with each of these firms regarding their investment parameters for new portfolio companies, as well as strategic growth plans for current portfolio companies. Our private equity-related activities include both exclusive sell-side assignments and strategic buy-side engagements.
Petsky Prunier assists corporations and private equity groups in executing acquisition programs. Growth by acquisition creates the opportunity for companies to add earnings, diversify cash flow, achieve economies of scale and expand into new markets. We work with our clients in buy-side engagements to develop a strategy for acquisition-driven growth, identify companies to target for acquisition, approach targets and negotiate terms, facilitate due diligence and collaborate with clients to complete transactions on their behalf.
