We are focused on delivering the highest quality financial advice to our clients through our intense industry focus, specialized skills and unrelenting commitment to our clients' success. The firm's professionals have over 60 years of combined business and financial experience in assisting emerging and established businesses evaluate and consummate financial and strategic transactions. Our extensive network of institutional investors, securities firms, and market-makers provide clients the benefit of efficient and timely execution of their strategic transactions.
When representing clients on the buy-side of a transaction, our foremost objective is to fully understand the intricacies of the company we are working with, such that positive issues can be highlighted and issues of potential concern can be addressed. We help our clients identify strategic alternatives, evaluate operating synergies, and negotiate purchase terms. In cases where a strategic alliance or joint venture is deemed to be most appropriate, we know how to identify and develop the best partnership or alliance structure, and how to assist management in the development of strategies aimed at ensuring the company will perform well once the transaction is closed.
On a sell-side transaction, we work shoulder to shoulder with senior members of the company and initiate a process which includes composing a comprehensive offering memorandum, while simultaneously identifying a targeted group of potential industry and financial acquirers. At all times, we remained focused toward our client's objectives, including maintaining confidentiality, preserving the management team, and maximizing value. We will market the opportunity to a select group of potential buyers and after narrowing the field down to several qualified offers, we negotiate and facilitate the closing of the transaction. We explore all alternatives, including the opportunities for public and private acquisitions from both inside and outside the focus industry.
Alinian works closely with its clients to highlight the characteristics that differentiate them from the crowded investment marketplace. We manage the entire private placement process, enabling managers to focus on what they do best - managing their business. We assist in the preparation of a high-quality offering memorandum, make introductions to qualified institutional investors and assist with negotiating the investment terms. Our process will clearly identify the opportunity, properly position the company for funding, and significantly improve the odds of obtaining funding, which includes financings of equity, mezzanine debt and senior debt financing. In addition, we have an in-depth understanding of the relevant regulatory, legal and tax implications, which enables us to guide our clients through every phase of the transaction.
