Deal Sourcing for Private Equity Firms
Alcon Partners works closely with middle market and lower middle market private equity firms sourcing highly qualified investment and buyout opportunities. We provide an outsourced business development office on a retained or contingency basis for both platform and add-on businesses.
We specialize in sourcing proprietary opportunities, but also engage in deals that are represented but have non-standard sale processes
Upon engagement, we work closely with each client to:
- Understand the funds investment thesis and criteria
- Identify industries and sectors that are of general interest
- Review the funds existing portfolio and identify add-on opportunities
- Develop a communication process within the firm for deal review
For each deal we source, we use our experience as both operators and investors to:
- Understand business drivers of the company
- Untangle and interpret financial statements
- Provide insight into seller motivation and objectives
- Present objective pros and cons of the deal
By presenting only highly targeted and highly qualified opportunities, we help our clients save time and spend it on only the most promising opportunities.
