Acquisition Financing with Lantern Capital Advisors
A common growth strategy for our clients is making strategic acquisitions. Lantern Capital Advisors works with clients in order to successfully arrange and execute single or multiple mergers or acquisitions concurrent with raising the financing required for a merger or acquisition as determined in the business plan.
We help our clients finance acquisitions during the business planning process from issuing letters of intent (LOI) to execution of the acquisition concurrent with raising the growth capital.
Similar to our expertise with successful management buyouts, we help analyze acquisition targets in order to pre-address how the acquisition will best fit into the corporate financial model and determine the amount of the acquisition in order to achieve the funding required.
Acquisition Financing: Creative Ways To Build Shareholder Value
When considering an acquisition (and alternatives for acquisition financing) there are always three key items of consideration. In order of importance they are:
- The continued growth opportunity provided by the acquisition
- The acquisition financing terms
- The purchase price
Many acquisitions that fail often do so because those priorities are not in line. The most common mistake is rationalizing an acquisition because of an attractive purchase price, rather than its strategic importance to the buyer’s existing business and future growth plans.
Listed below are a few important pointers, for acquiring, financing and executing acquisitions that can build significant value for the buyer’s shareholders.
Admittedly, some of the strategies outlined above may seem to fly in the face of conventional wisdom, but they do provide the key ingredients to a successful transaction and build value for the most important stakeholder’s in any transaction, the buyer’s existing shareholders.
