Merger & Acquisitions
Q Advisors specializes in structuring and negotiating global merger and acquisition (M&A) transactions on both the sell-side and the buy-side. Our diverse clients range from family-owned businesses to private-equity-backed companies to large publicly traded multi-nationals. We have a broad network of strategic and financial relationships that we have created over the years. Not only do we have a track record of facilitating highly successful M&A transactions, but we also offer greater global reach and a deeper level of insight into the TMT industries than other investment banks.
Our M&A practice is focused primarily on exclusive sale mandates on behalf of a diverse client base of sellers and their investors. We work collaboratively with each client to develop highly customized, comprehensive plans that focus on strategy, valuation, transaction structure, and execution. Whether we are establishing auction parameters for a sell-side engagement or implementing an efficient structure for a cross-border merger, we leverage our deep financial, legal, and transactional skill sets to address a myriad of business challenges. In each case, we work with our client to achieve shareholder and strategic objectives, while maximizing value.
Q Advisors has access to a deep network of both strategic buyer and majority investor relationships. Given our significant market presence in the TMT space, we are able to maintain ongoing dialogue with a large range of active global investors and potential buyers, both those looking for accretive acquisitions as well as those seeking significant growth opportunities.
Q Advisors assists strategic clients and private equity firms in executing growth transactions, accretive acquisitions, and roll-up strategies. Whether the goal is to expand market reach or to add additional products and services, we work as an extension of a client’s management team to achieve their stated objectives. Our firm assists clients in developing strategies for acquisition-driven growth, identifying acquisition candidates, approaching targets, and negotiating transaction terms.
Debt & Equity Capital
Q Advisors has raised significant amounts of debt and equity capital for our clients.
