Mergers and Acquisitions Our approach blends the experience of our medical device thought leaders with our deep industry knowledge to identify suitable companies for acquisition and expansion, and help you find potential buyers. ENQUIRE

Whether you want to drive growth through acquisition, or find a suitable buyer for your business, identifying the right companies is key. There are a host of reasons why mergers and acquisitions fail, so we use our expertise to deter these issues from affecting our clients’ deals. As experts in the orthopaedic and healthcare industry, we understand the intricacies of the market, as well as have expert understanding and experience in M&A.

 

We try to ensure that due diligence is efficient and accurate and that there is a strong understanding of the product or market, as well as the ‘softer’ considerations such as ensuring a good company-culture fit. Supporting buyers to evaluate a business’s future potential provides value for a seller, but also integration pointers for the buyer.

 

With our extensive in-house database we know which companies are for sale, and who’s actively looking for acquisition targets.We are committed to supporting the needs of each client and can help you meet any or all of the following deliverables:

Sell-Side M&A

 

Once we have a solid understanding of a business, its products, culture and future potential, and the reasons a company might be interested in acquiring it, we approach the most suitable buyers.

 

Being sector specialists, we understand the key drivers for acquisitions:

 

  • Diversification: offering a new product or service to existing or potential customers
  • Expansion: broadening current offering or product portfolio, and building market share
  • Vertical integration: extending the route-to-market,  offering an end-to-end service
  • Geographical growth: replicating the business model in new regions by buying established companies or enhancing current markets
  • Talent acquisition: developing a skilled workforce

 

We support companies throughout the process, highlighting their true value and potential, identifying strategic buyers and securing the best return.

Buy-Side M&A

 

Whether a company is looking to expand its current product portfolio, drive international growth, or become vertically integrated; we identify potential targets that offer significant growth potential.

 

After developing client-specific criteria, we help shortlist acquisition targets. We then carry out the relevant research to identify the current value and future potential of the business, and to highlight any pitfalls.

 

Being specialists in the MedTech industry, we know the technologies, challenges and innovations having an impact on the industry, suppliers and customers. This helps us identify and analyse factors and opportunities that may have been overlooked.

 

The best suitors may operate in the same sector of orthopaedics, or it may be more beneficial to diversify and explore other types of medical device or segments of healthcare. We’ll help you evaluate each opportunity on its own merit to determine the best way forward, whether it’s through absorption or buying and operating a subsidiary company.
