An acquisition is the purchase of one business or company by another company or other business entity.
While most private companies and real estate transactions focus on the sell side, public companies, private equity firms and sophisticated entrepreneurs with strong operating experience engage the Shaughnessy Group to outsource and reduce their fixed internal cost by outsourcing acquisitions for their company or fund to our team to buy a business.
We are a national full-service financial and business advisory firm. Our team members have decades of corporate finance and operating experience across variety of industries originating, sourcing, structuring, closing; mergers, acquisitions, debt, equity, securitizations, capital raising, joint-venture, alliance and supplier transactions for some of the best-known public and privately held Canadian companies.
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.
