AN EFFECTIVE PROCESS
Let’s face it, managing a business while starting a buy-side transaction and coordinating the large number of parties and steps involved is both distracting and time intensive. One Stop understands this and tailors our representation to be flexible, efficient and most importantly, effective, in identifying acquisition targets. One Stop Capital focuses on the acquisition process so that you can continue with the fundamental task of running your business.
WHAT ARE THE BASIC STEPS INVOLVED?
STEP 1 – CREATE THE TARGET PROFILE – We first need to list and understand your unique needs and attributes as a buyer so that we can then determine the “gap” that must be filled. This gap contains one or more of the missing complimentary elements that must be found within the ideal target company. These elements could be a set of tech service offerings, a certain financial or corporate structure, proprietary software, distribution or channel capability, geographic or sub-sector strengths, strong functional management or just about anything that creates 1+1=3 after your company is combined with the potential target.
STEP 2 – IDENTIFY POTENTIAL TARGETS – Once we determine your unique needs and desired target attributes, we list all potential targets meeting your criteria and prioritize and quantify them so that you can make informed decisions in the least amount of time. All initial contacts and inquiries are handled by us to provide you with a short, qualified list of candidates for your further consideration and in-depth analysis.
Step 3 – DUE DILIGENCE – One Stop Capital has close relations with legal and accounting professionals steeped in corporate M&A and the specific needs of the ever-changing technology sector. Not only are there financial and regulatory hurdles to consider but a wide variety of operational, client support, privacy, and many other road bumps that tech companies face in today’s world. One Stop capital has the experience to dig deeper, discover and interpret the level of compliance within a candidate company.
STEP 4 – CLOSING THE DEAL – The formation of the initial price and financial structure of the transaction and then, the submission of an LOI, are critical steps within this final step. We help support the reasoning used which can expedite this emotional laden piece of the acquisition puzzle. At this point of the process, time is always of the essence as it is important to keep revenue streams pumping and important management in place. Working in the capacity of a benevolent emissary, we help drive the deal towards a successful conclusion.
