Private Equity & Venture Capital


Deal Advisory

NEGOTIATING FROM A POSITION OF STRENGTH TO REDUCE RISK AND TO MAXIMISE PRICE

Financial investors require a dedicated team of advisers to complement and augment their own specialist knowledge and experience. In a short space of time, they need to identify and understand the deal-critical aspects of a transaction, including:

 

Key business drivers and their impact on profitability

Performance indicators and their relation to cash

Normalised cash flow and current cash burn

Adjusted and normalised net working capital

Debt and debt-like items, and repayment terms

Committed and essential capital expenditure

Management agreements and incentives

Financial projections assumptions and model integrity

Key contracts and business partners

Protection of Intellectual Property

Existing Shareholder Agreements

 

ILV SILVER works with most of Spain’s leading Venture Capital funds, as well as many Private Equity funds and investors from outside Spain.

 

Most deals are conducted in English, reflecting the international nature of investors and of target company ambitions.
