Triangle Capital provides expert advice relating to mergers and acquisitions. Our team is dedicated to servicing the focused needs of middle-market clients, including the commitment of the time and resources necessary to learn objectives, discuss strategic alternatives and define expectations in a realistic and achievable light. We offer assistance in initiating, structuring, valuing, financing, and consummating mergers and acquisitions, purchases and sales of both public and privately-owned businesses.
Triangle Capital's professionals have extensive experience in helping you to identify transactional opportunities, locating potential investors, buyers and sellers, and bringing the parties to mutual agreement at the negotiating table. Our extensive transaction history, industry relationships, and research capabilities ensure that before a transaction, clients are well informed about valuation, potential interested parties, the key stages in a transaction process, and the likely length of time to close a transaction. Triangle Capital seeks to help its clients achieve the best price, terms and strategic fit with the least disruption to the company.
Our customized sell-side advisory services provide sellers with the comfort that their years of dedication and ongoing investment of effort and capital will result in a smooth transaction, an optimal structure and maximized valuation. The scope of sell-side assignments varies depending on the goals of each business owner and the specific issues that pertain to their company. Triangle Capital's work has ranged from resolving family business succession issues through complete divestitures to providing business owners with liquidity and estate diversification through minority or majority equity recapitalizations. Triangle Capital has done many transactions with both strategic and financial entities.
We position the company to maximize the value in a sale or recapitalization, and we determine the optimal time to execute a marketing process based on company performance and prevailing market conditions. Our industry knowledge helps define the most likely and capable interested acquirers.
Triangle Capital takes great care to ensure that confidentiality is maintained throughout the process, preventing disruption in relationships with customers, vendors, employees and competitors.
We manage the entire transaction process, including preparation of all marketing and presentation materials, identification of appropriate partners/acquirers, negotiations of definitive agreements, and coordination of all transaction participants including lawyers, accountants, consultants and other necessary experts. Throughout, we ensure the sale process proceeds in a timely and professional manner, enabling management to remain focused on running the business.
Identified Buyer Situations
At times, a seller may have already identified a buyer and even agreed on some of the basic transaction terms. Our professional assistance helps the seller avoid numerous pitfalls in the transaction process; gain a clear, objective view of the value of the business and; if appropriate, expand the potential list of buyers and create a competitive process. Most important, our track record shows that our engagement increases the ultimate value of the transaction by meaningful amounts and ensures that it will close. While the sale or purchase of a business is generally a very unusual event, and the process an unfamiliar one for our clients, it is our day-to-day existence. This allows us to give our clients the highest quality advice based on deep experience.
Most middle market companies cannot afford to dedicate the resources necessary to mount an effective in-house corporate development effort. Triangle Capital assists clients in evaluating market opportunities and identifying potential acquisitions that fit their objectives and strategies. Searching for acquisitions starts with a sound strategy. The best acquirers carefully choose where they will invest and know what role a potential acquisition will play before they look at targets. Triangle Capital helps clients develop and refine their acquisition criteria, identifying potential target companies, engaging prospective targets, and negotiating and structuring a deal that seeks to meet the value expectations of all parties involved.
Triangle Capital has extensive experience helping financial and corporate buyers navigate strategic acquisitions to achieve maximum benefit with minimum risk. Whatever the transactional context, our clients benefit from disciplined execution and unconventional thinking.
