Investment & Corporate Advisory
Shape Capital is an investment and corporate advisory firm specialising in capital raising (private and public capital markets), local and cross-border mergers and acquisitions, and trade sales.
There are no public marketplaces for selling companies. It is the role of your 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 process to ensure you are always in control over the sale process and strict confidentiality is always maintained.
We have access to active buyers including Private Equity, Corporate Consolidators and Strategic Buyers.
We provide quality deal flow to Buy-Side Advisory firms, 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 network. 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 have developed a custom integration of global Investment Banking Platforms directly into our SalesForce CRM to allow us to track each stage of the M&A process.
We are able to track all buyers for each M&A campaign in real-time providing us with a first mover advantage to close deals faster.
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.
The Shape Capital team is industry seasoned, comprising experienced corporate professionals and entrepreneurs who have successfully taken companies from start up, to scale and exit. We have an innate understanding of the challenges of growing and shaping successful companies and we add value through strategic advice, providing access to capital and an M&A platform which maximises your value.
