Competitive Bidding

There are no public marketplaces for selling companies. It is the role of your M&A advisor to develop the right strategy and invite strategic buyers into the sale process, creating the ‘marketplace’ of qualified buyers who bid for your business at the same time.

Shape Capital runs a structured M&A process to ensure you are always in control over the sale process and strict confidentiality is always maintained.

Buy-Side Advisory Partnerships

We provide quality deal flow to Buy-Side Advisory firm, from around the world who have existing mandates and relationships with large corporates actively looking for acquisitions.

If required, we partner with other Sell-Side Advisory firms to leverage their buyer and investor distribution networks. This can be particularly helpful if dealing with a complex cross-boarder transaction or if we are seeking a particular buyer that has an established relationship with an advisory firm.

We Close Deals Faster

We subscribe to global Investment Banking Platforms and have access to transaction data of active buyers from around the world.

In addition to quickly reaching new buyers that enter the market, we also have access to the latest transaction data for valuation benchmark analysis.

The investment banking platforms allow us to see who the active buyers are in your industry vertical, their past M&A transactions, historical valuations, and contact details of their advisors.

Data Security & Privacy

We use an enterprise virtual data room solution that is highly secure and compliant with ISO 27001 certification. We have a robust and well executed due diligence process to ensure minimum disruption to your business, whilst convenient for buyers, and strict controls over security and privacy of your information.

With our data room solution, we have granular control over buyers’ staff and advisors and your files. We can also control what buyers can do with each file including print and save, blocking and watermarking. We can also remotely disable files if a buyer falls out of the sale process.

With real-time analytics we can also view buyer behaviour, which we can use in our negotiation strategies or if we find suspicious behaviour of saying one thing and doing another allowing us to lock a buyer out of the process, if required.
