Beyond Due Diligence
Traditional resources are focused on doing “a” deal. Beacon focuses on identifying the right opportunity to achieve corporate objectives.
Early Stage Investment: Assessment and ranking of potential acquisition candidates to generate an index of target opportunities.
Late Stage Support: Real-time analysis of deal assumptions to drive deal valuation and to identify potential longer-term operational issues for our clients.
Strategic Alliance: M&A/Partner Indexing
With our proprietary methodology, The Beacon Group helps its clients make well-educated decisions on acquisition opportunities.
Our model incorporates an assessment of the attractiveness of potential acquisition targets through an in-depth analysis of their market positions, competitive strengths and weaknesses, management depths, and customer relationships. Beacon’s process goes far more in depth than the standard investment banking due diligence process.
Our clients for this service range from smaller VCs through Fortune 500 corporations.
Strategic Alliance Development
Our clients realize the opportunity to reach new markets and products/services through a formal alliance capability.
If done well, strategic alliances can provide the same functional benefits as acquisition without the investment cost.
