Private Equity/Venture Capital
The private equity industry was under intense scrutiny prior to the recession.
This seems to have abated, and there appears to be recognition that private equity provides an invaluable source of funding in the corporate world. This is particularly important in the current climate, with reduced leverage from the banks following the global restrictions on liquidity.
Mercer & Hole offers a range of services to small to medium size venture capital/private equity providers. We recognise that a different skill set is required on transactions in this part of the market.
Due Diligence is crucially important to the investment decision, and our reports are not simply a verification of the numbers – we aim to understand the business, its people, markets and the key levers which make it a success. We will comment upon transition and integration issues, helping to alleviate post acquisition problems. We will work with the acquisition team at the fund manager – investment managers/directors and partners – becoming a crucial member of that team, as well as an external adviser.
Mercer & Hole also provide post acquisition services for portfolio companies – including standard compliance work (audits, corporation tax etc), developing board level reporting packages and assistance with modelling.
Our experience of this part of the private equity market, makes us ideally placed to offer an excellent service at a sensible price.
