Mergers and Acquisitions

In advising companies on the acquisition of a company or set of assets, we evaluate potential acquisition targets, provide valuation analyses, and evaluate and propose financial and strategic alternatives. We also advise as to the timing, structure, financing, and pricing of a proposed acquisition, and assist in negotiating and closing the deal.

Divestitures and Sale Transactions

We advise clients contemplating the sale of certain businesses, assets, or their entire company by evaluating and recommending financial and strategic alternatives with respect to the sale, advising on the appropriate sales process for the situation and valuation issues, and preparing an offering memorandum and other appropriate sales materials. We also identify and contact qualified acquirers and assist in negotiating and closing the sale.

Special Committee and Fairness Opinion Assignments

The Columbus Partners are frequently approached for Special Committee assignments and to render Fairness Opinions. We are well known for our independence, our discretion, and for devoting senior-level attention throughout a project lifecycle. This results in our ability to provide an extremely thorough, well- considered, and unbiased perspective on third-party strategic transactions.

Capital Markets Advisory and Equity Underwriting
