These transactions involve ownership changes of businesses, including sales of the business, assets, and/or securities of entire companies, subsidiaries, or operation divisions of larger business enterprises. PVB Advisors represents both buyers and sellers.
Availability of capital is the engine of the M&A business, and PVB Advisors is often engaged by clients pursuing corporate acquisitions to arrange for capital sufficient to finance the acquisition and provide for working capital and the funding of growth initiatives post-closing.
Prior to pursuing specific transactions, clients often seek counsel regarding alternatives available to them, current market conditions, assessments of value for their business, and the effect that the completion of transactions may have on shareholder value. PVB Advisors will also advise company owners on actions which should be taken to maximize value in a sale transaction, as well as serve as consultants or temporary outsourced Chief Financial Officers for client companies subsequent to the completion of strategic transactions.
Unforeseen economic downturns, client losses, management turnover and other extraordinary circumstances sometimes result in the inability of companies to service debt obligations. PVB Advisors will work with client companies to manage negotiations with lenders, manage cash flow, reduce overhead costs, divest of non-core assets, and return the client to financial health.
PVB Advisors will consider investments in transactions they manage, either in the form of cash contribution, or equity in lieu of fees.
