Grow your business to the next level
Your business started with a vision. Picked up speed through your passion, drive and determination. Now, to take it to the next level, you need to make one or many transformational acquisitions.
We can help you make those moves.
We specialize in structuring M&A transactions that meaningfully change the course and outlook of mid-market companies.
When we are tasked with executing on an comprehensive acquisition strategy, our clients engage us because we are unrivalled in the country in terms of deal sourcing capabilities. Most other firms focus on delivering due diligence services, not finding and negotiating the right deal.
Underpinning those capabilities is our team of origination analysts and managers, whose sole purpose is to keep their finger on the pulse (i.e. the intentions) of potential sellers. They track 24,135 Canadian companies (as of Oct 29, 2020), and can easily access targets in the US and elsewhere through their own research and proprietary deal technologies, other advisors in our network, and limited-access mergers and acquisitions marketplaces.
