HafeziCapital’s M&A focuses on helping clients undertake Market Research, provide effective and functional analysis and ultimately help our Client’s develop an acquisition Strategy. The process of M&A Consulting generally starts with an understanding “why buying a company or its assets,” and what the measurable goals for an acquisition will be. To this extent, HafeziCapital’s M&A Consultants work hard in developing the correct market research about your company. Given where you are in the growth process the acquisition may be domestic or international. The analysis allows Companies to understand what type of Companies are available to them or competing against them within the market, and how to position the sale or acquisition so its most successful. It also provides visibility as to what the cost of an acquisition can be. This is also an important timeframe to ensure the Company has the ability to access Debt Markets if the acquisition requires bank loans.

This approach allows us to provide the company with a serious potential buyers list with a defensible Acquisition Strategy that can be defended to the Board of Directors.
Sell Side: If HafeziCapital is representing you on the sale side, the Market Research will allow us to see who a potential buyer is, why your company is unique for acquisition and what pricing and valuations based on ratios we should expect.
