Since 2015 Palatina Investments has advised corporate and private equity clients in how to create value from a business acquisition, combination or separation. We also help clients plan joint ventures, alliances and other alternative structures.
Our approach is research-intensive, unbiased and confidential. We combine data and financial analysis with industry knowledge to help you realize the true value of an opportunity. We also have a global presence, which provides the local insight and language skills required to orchestrate complex multinational M&A transactions.
Find good companies to invest in. Use Palatina Investments impartial guidance to profile optimal acquisition targets. You’ll expand your options for potential M&A candidates and improve the odds of finding good opportunities that are off the radar of any other acquirer.
Look under the hood of your acquisition. Test and quantify the variables that inform the rest of the deal process and validate the critical assumptions of your theses. Along the way, you’ll get advance knowledge of key issues with the target company. You’ll also benefit from proprietary insight into the perspectives of key customers, suppliers and competitors.
Joint ventures & alliances
Team up under an alternative structure that works. Gain advance knowledge of the partnership’s potential costs and benefits plus a fact base for negotiations. You’ll also head off issues and misunderstandings with the decisions and buy-in you achieve upfront.
Creating a combination greater than the sum of its parts. Preparation is key to creating (and not destroying) value in an integration. Palatina Investments global post-merger integration (PMI) specialists work with our sector teams to ensure you receive a seamless service across the deal life-cycle, from large-scale, global deals to mid-market and smaller transactions, resulting in a smooth deal close and the development of a combined entity that is worth more than the sum of its parts.
Plan for a fast, clean and worthwhile break. Besides managing the risk of a sales transaction, you’ll position the business to flourish after a sale and realize the highest possible value from whatever divestitures you make.
