A pocket guide to Global Buyer Targeting
Back to other articles →
In recent years, the appetite from overseas acquirers for quality UK based acquisition opportunities has become more prevalent and interest from this route continues to grow.
Our research analysts can identify appropriate overseas prospects by utilising our Global company data resources, which provide comprehensive company details and profiling of over 90 million prospective purchasers. We may agree to concentrate on European prospects or solely focus on a specific country. Alternatively, in certain projects, we may just want to target the US market or the Far East market.
We will also implement a specific online strategy to capture active potential acquirers and reference our Global Deal Completion database to identify sector related acquirers who may still be on the acquisition trail.
Further to this, our worldwide alliance network, KBS Global, provides assistance in identifying and reaching buyers from across the globe, offering a truly International perspective. We have partnerships with M&A advisers and professionals in more than 50 countries worldwide. We choose to work with partners who have an extensive track record in handling Global company sale transactions across a wide range of industries. They possess valuable knowledge of active buyers and investors within their respective countries and within a wide range of industries. Their local and cultural background, combined with their experience in cross border deal execution, allows KBS Corporate to deliver a unique service which is of great benefit to our clients.
These partners work in conjunction with KBS Corporate to make contact with the prospective buyers which we have identified ed. We will provide them with the presentational documents to allow them to understand how acquirers within their country would benefit from such a transaction. This allows preliminary discussions to take place in their immediate country/location and ensures we can then progress with serious capable acquirers, no matter where they are within the world.
This Global coverage allows us to facilitate the delivery of local and cultural support in handling cross border transactions.
Our Global intelligence software, International M&A partnerships and exclusive Global buyer sourcing techniques are unrivalled within the industry. This
extensive Global reach capability has enabled us to drive company sale values higher as International acquirers have often presented offers in excess of those offered by UK counterparts.
