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.
With Private Equity, we conduct due diligence on both initial investments and portfolio company build-ups.
Private Equity deals usually involve a significant cultural change. We aim to make a complicated deal process more effective both before and after the transaction, with specific services:
Limited reviews of identified risk areas of target companies in advance of deal negotiations and agreement of a Letter of Intent
Assistance to target company management in the preparation and analysis of information in advance of more extensive due diligence investigations
Post-deal financial planning to ensure a smooth transition in financial management procedures of a business under new ownership
Development of management financial reporting tools and KPI dashboard
Assessment of key management and corporate organisation structure
Review of IT infrastructure and risk management
Doing operations with start-ups is as complicated as doing operations with big companies, but it also requires a mentality, flexibility and agility that ILV SILVER has shown us it possesses.
