MTBS M&A supports strategic operators and financial investors in developing their acquisition strategy, identifying potential acquisition targets, and managing the entire buy-side transaction process – from initial approach of targets towards completion of the transaction. Our specialisation in the ports and maritime sectors provides a superior understanding of targets and our large global network is ideal for identifying opportunities that suit the investment criteria of our clients. This also allows the identification of targets which can be approached with unsolicited offers outside any formal divestment process initiated by the target. Our strong relationships with financial institutions experienced in the maritime sector also enable us to support our clients in the financing of acquisitions.

MTBS M&A offers lead buy-side advisory services including:

✔  Acquisition strategy development
✔  Target identification & approach
✔  Due diligence
✔  Valuation

✔  Transaction management & structuring
✔  Documentation preparation
✔  Financing advisory
✔  Negotiation assistance
