Mid-market businesses are increasingly facing challenges to achieve scale, and we believe that the inorganic path is essential to continued growth and success. We have helped clients carry out various acquisitions which have helped them:
Mergers & Acquisitions
Provide scale and / or differentiation to remain competitive
Diversify into more attractive products and services
Gain entrance into new geographical markets and customer segments
At Chesapeake, we work as an extension of your corporate development team, guiding you to define strategic priorities for the most value-enhancing opportunities, identify the appropriate target, negotiate transaction economics and terms, and coordinate business due diligence. We can also help you address post-transaction integration processes.
We have helped a number of shareholders realize value and achieve liquidity through the sale of their business. Timing and finding the appropriate buyer are the key aspects of exits and other liquidity events. We have helped clients maximize value at exit through our extensive expertise in:
Identifying key valuation drivers
Approaching the right set of prospective buyers through our international network
Creating economically efficient structures of transaction
We have significant experience in successfully marketing businesses to highlight the unique investment opportunities and value drivers to buyers. We believe that the transaction structure and post-transaction employment issues are equally important economic implications as the exit price. We look to work with our clients to maximize value through all these aspects of a transaction. We help selling entrepreneurs navigate through the complex legal and accounting aspects of the transaction in order to minimize their risk.
We have also helped a number of businesses form strategic partnerships in the form of joint ventures, sales & distribution agreements and BOT agreements.
Chesapeake's advantages include:
Deep relationships with some of the leading Technology and Business Services companies in the world
On-ground knowledge of multiple geographies through our global presence and network of partners
