Acthus Capital advise clients in a number of different situations across many industries and geographies, each of which requires merger acquisition services:

Merger and Acquisition Advice and Execution: Fuelling growth

When we advise companies about the potential acquisition of another company or certain assets. Acthus services include evaluating potential acquisition targets, providing valuation analyses, evaluating and proposing financial and strategic alternatives and rendering, if appropriate, fairness opinions.

We also may advise as to the timing, structure, financing and pricing of a proposed acquisition and assist in negotiating and closing the acquisition

Sell-side Advisory

When we advise clients that are contemplating the sale of businesses, assets or their entire company.

Acthus Capital services include evaluating and recommending financial and strategic alternatives with respect to a sale of the business, advising on the appropriate sales process, and valuation issues, assisting in preparing an offering memorandum or other appropriate sales materials and rendering, if appropriate, fairness opinions. We also identify and contact selected qualified acquirers and assist in negotiating and closing the sale

Buy-side Advisory

We have a strong record of successful buy side advisory assignments in relation to public or private target companies. Acting for target companies, special board committees or selling shareholders, we can operate at the heart of any process, assist in negotiations and give impartial and objective advice about the merits of bids received


MBOs: Management as shareholders

Acthus Capital helps operating managers acquire companies from their present owners. Managers often lack the necessary capital to acquire the company from the selling shareholders. Acthus Capital will help develop negotiating strategies and finance resources for the acquisition. We work with management to structure a financing solution that provides the company with the proper blend of debt and equity to consummate the acquisition and to provide sufficient working capital to support future growth.

Acthus Capital Partners offers independence, quality and thoroughness, devoting senior-level attention throughout the project lifecycle. Acthus objectivity, integrity and discretion allow us to provide an unbiased perspective. Acthus does not underwrite securities, publish securities research or act as a lender. We are therefore not burdened by these potential conflicts of interest when advising Boards of Directors and rendering fairness opinions.
