OUR PROCESS: Sell-Side Representation

Commercial Plus Capital Advisory begins by taking the time to develop a thorough understanding of your business so that we may in turn best represent you to the field of buyers that will have an interest in acquiring your business.

From our understanding of all of the relevant wants and needs of the Company's shareholders, we develop a customized target list of Private Equity groups and/or potential strategic acquirers as appropriate for your Company's unique situation.

We prepare an Executive Summary on your business providing interested parties with your Company's basic financial performance, main business segment(s) and general transactional goals. This initial round of marketing is done confidentially and anonymously, with your Company's name and specific identifying details kept private.

With personal and individualized follow-up, Commercial Plus will have only qualified, interested buyers execute Confidentiality Agreements allowing them to review a more-detailed, Commercial Plus-prepared Offering Memorandum that builds on the Executive Summary in presenting your Company's past successes, unique strengths and future opportunities in exhaustive detail.

Commercial Plus will arrange and moderate conference calls and in-person meetings between the management of your Company and interested parties to further enhance suitor understanding of the value of your business at all levels. Solicitation of offers from several parties who have been walked through this process ensures that you receive multiple, simultaneous, competitive offers from a range of attractive suitors, allowing you to select and Commercial Plus to negotiate on your behalf, the best possible deal with the best possible partner.

Once a term-sheet is executed, Commercial Plus commits all of its energies to facilitating an expeditious and successful closing. We work with your buyer in the execution of their due-diligence, allowing you to focus on the successful continuation of operations. Commercial Plus further acts as your advocate and a buffer between you and the buyer in any and all subsequent negotiations thereby maximizing value for your shareholders either in a complete exit from the business or in a partnership going forward.

OUR PROCESS: Buy-Side Representation

CP Capital Advisory begins by working with management to define strategic objectives.

Whether we are working with a small high-growth company with an innovative technology looking to gain critical mass through and acquisition or a large company that wants to expand its territory, gain market share, or diversify its business portfolio we get to know what the buyer is seeking and how we can achieve their goals.

The first step is to create the ideal profile for a potential target then go out and find a list of companies fitting that description.

Next we make the initial contact with the narrowed list of potential targets and gather crucial information about the potential target including customer information, financial information, products, and potential synergies. During the evaluation process we will gauge interest and analyze trade-offs between Cash Flow and Price.

The next step would be the first meeting between the client company and the potential target. Management teams have the opportunity to meet and evaluate different management styles and business practices and finally who may be involved in the future combined management team.

The final step is to prepare and structure the offer proposal and negotiate the deal to its final closing. Giving a fair deal to the sellers and optimizing shareholder value for our client.
