BUY SIDE

Would you buy a house without a home inspection?
Let us safeguard your investment.
A buy side mandate is typically split into two phases:

Phase 1: Bid Support

We help you evaluate the potential opportunity, enter negotiations, and arrive at the right bid amount. We analyze the major items at a high level to support the bid, while being mindful that the deal is still in early stages and being sensitive to fees. Accordingly, we identify the key areas to take a deeper dive on if the deal progresses to the next stage.

Phase 2: Financial Due Diligence

Here our firm performs thorough analysis on each of the components of your purchase price to refine the final deal value. This includes items like Quality of Earnings / Adjusted EBITDA, Net Working Capital, Debt and Debt-Like Items, Capital Expenditure requirements, etc.

 

Kalos also identifies the Company's key drivers for success post-close. This will enable you to have confidence in your ability to operate the business successfully before you take control.

SELL SIDE

You know your business, we know deals.
Together, let's maximize your sale price.

We're familiar with deal best practices, the questions buyers ask, and the elements that make a successful deal. Kalos arms you with the ability to tell the compelling story of your business with the corresponding financial analysis you need to spark, and more importantly keep, a buyer's interest. 

Let Kalos help you prepare, so that the moment you engage with a potential buyer to the moment the deal closes, you have confidence that you have represented your company as best as possible to maximize your sale price potential.

We are former bankers familiar with the capital raising process. Our firm will help you prepare in a way that will make the process smoother and more successful whether you need to support an equity or debt financing.


Kalos provides independent reports that will give credibility to your investors and lenders to get the raise done.
