Mergers & Acquisitions Group (Sell-Side)

Selling a company or divisional assets is a complex process, requiring expert planning, advice, and execution. EDS' Mergers & Acquisitions Group (Sell-Side) provides the complete spectrum of sell-side services and can assist the seller on a wide range of topics including valuation, legal, tax, accounting, regulatory, and financing issues.

EDS’ Mergers & Acquisitions Group thoroughly analyzes the client’s goals and works closely with company management and owners throughout the sale process to ensure maximum transactional value and that the needs of the client are paramount.

After visiting with the client, we prepare the necessary due diligence and an exclusive representation agreement to ensure project integrity and security. An evaluation of the business is made, a confidential memorandum is prepared, and potential buyers are researched and identified. Candidates are approached on a highly confidential basis only after the seller has reviewed and approved the prospective candidate.

The sale process can include the preparation of transactional due diligence, establishing a value for the company or divisional assets, preparing confidentiality agreements, and negotiating the terms and conditions of the sale. Once a buyer has been determined, EDS assists the client in a timely negotiation and closing period. This close involvement ensures that the sale progresses in a highly-controlled and confidential manner.

Many extraordinary opportunities currently exist for developers of unique new technologies and owners of established middle-market companies to sell to cash-rich multinational corporations and private-equity firms seeking to expand and grow their operations and investment portfolios through strategic acquisitions and investments.

Because of EDS’ position in the marketplace, our extensive database of international mergers and acquisitions activity, and strategic alliances with major Wall Street investment banks and global private-equity firms, we can bring our clients exceptional candidates, where others cannot.
