Buying a business?

Over the years, we have been in your shoes when it comes to buying a business and from that experience developed a professionally managed process well suited for companies looking to grow through acquisition, investors looking at private equity as a means of diversification and shareholder or management teams looking to gain equity within their existing companies. We can work with your team in determining the best business to buy, the right price to pay, the best way to structure the deal and how to properly access the right capital required for your transaction.

As advisors, with every buy-side mandate Shaughnessy Group undertakes, our goal is to clearly understand our client’s aims to deliver exceptional results. Our team will be there every step of the way to consider your strategic requirements, help identify potential acquisition targets (regionally, nationally and globally), perform due diligence on selected targets, value the benefits of acquiring a specific target, negotiate and establish key terms of the acquisition, conduct confirmatory due diligence once a letter of Intent is in place and work with the seller or their deal team to successfully close the transaction. We have proven cross-border execution capabilities including deals in Canada, Europe, and Asia.

We confidentially work with you, the business owner, or alongside your deal team to manage your acquisition strategy from start to finish. Whether you are a company looking to grow through acquisition or considering privately held acquisition targets as part of your investment product or strategy, the Shaughnessy Group can help you meet your transactional goals.
