Mergers & Acquisitions are one of the cornerstones of any business strategy. Organic business growth through product development and market extension can often be radically accelerated through acquiring, disposing of or merging with strategically aligned businesses. However, the process of sourcing, acquiring and integrating another business is filled with challenges that require specialist expertise and experience. We work closely with you, your in-house deal teams and fund managers throughout the transaction process to grow stakeholder value and maximise investment returns.

Transaction Advisory

If you have identified an acquisition or are looking to realise value through a disposal of equity, our specialised transaction advisory services help facilitate the mergers and acquisitions process. We help in identifying and evaluating acquisition targets or potential buyers, as well as providing ongoing support in the capital raising process, deal structuring and execution elements. 

Working with Step Advisory has been a privilege.  From the outset through our engagement the spirit of our relationship has not been one of client/advisor but rather one of partnership. You and your team have been sensitive to all the dynamics facing an entrepreneur and our business and I have thoroughly appreciated the opportunity to work with Step.

Deal Origination

Deal Origination forms the precursor to any merger, acquisition, disposal or private equity transaction. 

Capital Raising

To fund ventures that drive organic and acquisitive growth, businesses require capital, we connect you with investor networks.

Deal Structuring

We provide transaction support for mergers, acquisitions and disposals in collaboration with our trusted industry experts.

Transaction Support

Businesses operating in competitive corporate and entrepreneurial environments often require independent financial and commercial investigations to support investment decisions.  We provide you with specialist support during the deal phase of a transaction through valuations, due diligences, and financial modelling to best equip you with objective information when making financial decisions.

The Step team did not just do a due diligence on the target but took the time to consider who we are and what is important, and how that should reflect in their approach to the project and final recommendation. 
CEO, MERTECH

Due Diligence

We provide commercial and financial due diligence services that objectively evaluate a potential investment opportunity.

Valuations

A valuation is an independent and objective opinion on the fair market value of a potential acquisition, disposal or existing investment.

Financial Modelling

We conduct financial models to evaluate or estimate the financial outcomes of various business decisions.

Post Transaction Support

Investors do not only want to conclude excellent transactions but want to create value over the lifetime of their investments. To achieve this, active participation is required in order to be providing valuable insights and continually identify growth opportunities. Our team provides assistance to drive post transaction value whilst investors continue identifying future attractive acquisition opportunities. 

Private Equity Value Add Team

Our private equity value add offering is aimed at private equity firms who do not have an inhouse team.

Investment
Review

We perform post investment reviews to objectively assess the post transaction integration and value uplift. 

Investment Committee Support

Step has extensive experience in supporting transaction teams in the investment process.
