Pre-M&A Transaction Advice: Strategic Assessments

FrontierPoint develops short- and long-term strategic assessments to maximize the value of your business. Utilizing our research capabilities and transaction experience, we help you view your business through the eyes of a potential investor.  This can include normalizing historical earnings and cash flow, conducting a competitive analysis and analyzing relevant industry trends.  We identify potential opportunities for business improvement that will raise the value of your business and work closely with you to help execute your plans.

Financial Restructuring

FrontierPoint advises on transactions for distressed businesses involving a change of control, asset sales or other M&A activities. These situations may involve selling a company or its assets quickly, often in contested or litigious settings. Distressed M&A candidates typically face one or more of the following challenges: (i) changing industry conditions, (ii) deteriorating operating performance and cash flow, (iii) potential loss of key employees, (iv) liquidity constraints, (v) limited access to new capital and (vi) commencement or threat of bankruptcy proceedings.  Our expertise can help you navigate these issues to achieve your objectives.
