While running competitive M&A sales processes is Geneva’s core service, we will also advise sellers in “one off” situations where a seller is being pursued by a qualified buyer and needs an experienced M&A advisor to represent them and manage the M&A process to a successful conclusion. In addition, on a select basis, Geneva will act as an intermediary in shareholder buyout negotiations.Typically acting on behalf of the existing shareholder to ensure they receive a fair price and terms for their equity interest.
We have access to a large number of leading institutions both in Canada and abroad and can match the requirements of a borrower to the particular specialties of the lender. Whether the requirement is for expansion financing, replacement of existing debt, acquisition financing or shareholder buyout we will be pleased to assess the particular requirements and propose a financing solution.
On a selective basis, we are prepared to act for purchasers who require assistance with an acquisition program. This may range from general guidance on establishing an acquisition platform to advice on the selection of specific targets and sourcing appropriate financing.
