M&A Advisory That Supports Your Success 

When approaching acquisitions or a sale, companies must carefully evaluate each aspect of the transaction. It’s critically important to have your financial, operational, and strategic assumptions evaluated by an objective third party, who brings an outside perspective honed by years of experience in an array of industry specific deal scenarios. 

Centri’s M&A professionals have the insight and experience to drive significant value for private equity, venture capital, family offices, public companies, family-owned businesses, and other private company’s investors across all phases of the M&A life cycle – from initial strategy, due diligence through execution and integration.

Our experts utilize their vast deal experience to provide a unique value measurement solution enabling our clients to achieve their goals through successful planning and execution of both buy-side and sell-side transactions.

Our Approach

  • Assessing the benefits and risks of each target through detailed financial analysis, financial due diligence, and forecasting.
  • Conducting a thorough evaluation of your chosen target to ensure you get the most out of the transaction.
  • Maximizing successful outcomes by developing a go-to-market strategy in preparation for a full or partial liquidity event.
  • Optimizing marketability and exit value, accelerating the exit process, and identifying or mitigating risks that could adversely affect the valuation or salability of the business.
