Achelous Partners has access to the top legal, accounting, and tax advisors globally, and has well established strategic relationships with other financial institutions, institutional investors, and private equity providers.

Sell Side Advisory
For our sell-side clients, value maximization means identifying and communicating the key attributes of the business or asset being sold to the most appropriate and qualified group of potential strategic and financial buyers. Key factors of success for sell-side transactions include identifying the best potential buyers and accessing decision-makers among them to present an organized, competitive sale process managed across a realistic timeline. Without a competitive sale process- or at least the perception of one- a seller can lose control of the sale process and fail to maximize value. Our sell-side services include:

  • Maximizing value
  • Identifying the most qualified acquirers
  • Negotiating and structuring the transaction
  • Tailoring the sale strategy relative to our clients' goals and objectives
  • Valuation modeling
  • Preparation of Information Memorandum / Teaser
  • Marketing to bidders, with a focus on speed of execution and achieving a high certainty of transaction completion
  • Maintaining complete confidentiality throughout the sale process

For public targets (and certain private targets, depending on the situation), we are frequently called upon to provide a Fairness Opinion.

Buy Side Advisory
For our buy-side clients, Achelous Partners' team members source acquisition opportunities through constant global travel and attending a significant number of industry conferences every year. Our role includes:

  • Identifying qualified acquisition targets
  • Negotiating and structuring transactions
  • Due diligence of financial accounts and revenue projections
