STS_HomePage_Award_2015We are very proud of our team and the incredible result that we delivered for our client, a wireless retailer. Over a 20-month period, STS advised on the strategic roll-up and planned exit strategy, bringing multiple potential buyers to the table, and significantly elevated the value of the business by strategically managing a soft auction. Our client’s expectations were significantly surpassed, with the final transaction at 700% of his original expected value.

Deal Best Practices:

  • Started with owners’ required and preferred outcomes.
  • Set a stretch objective for the transaction.
  • In this case, implemented a roll-up strategy first – to leverage platform synergies.
  • Brought international strategic investors to the table; and sought to understand their priorities/what they valued.
  • Focused on which strategic business drivers could be leveraged to maximize value of the company in their eyes.
  • Created a soft auction – and kept pressing the market even when we thought we had a deal.
  • Structured the deal to minimize cash requirements.
  • Each of the merged entities will benefit from leveraging the accretive synergies and respective strengths.
  • By maximizing value, we helped our client transform business success into personal significance.
