Structuring deals involves both whom you know and what you know. Having the right connections and networks of industry contacts, including partners, capital sources and business owners, allows IAA to provide the right connection to the appropriate decision makers at the right time.
IAA follows a personal, client-focused approach in which we are more interested in helping clients meet their capital and transactional objectives rather than simply closing another deal
IAA’s combined financial and operational experience allows our team to help capital-ready clients navigate the capital markets successfully. By understanding the client’s business and objectives, we know how to identify the right options, the right capital partners, the most favorable structures and the most attractive terms -- and then prepare and position the company for the best deal.
Arranging financing and advising companies, institutions and management teams on important capital transactions are areas in which IAA’s operational experience is particularly significant, allowing us to relate to clients on an “operator” level as well as in a financial advisory capacity.
Our experience includes debt, equity and structured financing for growth equity, recapitalization, acquisitions, divestitures and management buy-outs. Through close relationships with capital sources covering the equity, venture capital, senior debt, subordinate and unitranche debt, structured debt, sale/lease back, asset based lending and hedge fund markets, we can advise on all aspects of the transaction from planning through closing.
Mergers and Acquisitions
IAA embraces the role of trusted advisor very seriously. Most transactions, whether buying or selling, will have a dramatic impact on shareholder value. This is a critical time for clients to proceed with the benefit of wise counsel.
It all starts with understanding the client’s motivation and objectives, and then finding the best match. Whether the client is on the buy side, looking at acquisitions for strategic or financial purposes, or is interested in selling the business for the highest price, partial liquidity or growth capital, our process begins with frank discussions about the client’s vision, followed by a thorough examination of options and valuation.
