A global, diversified family office with assets spanning manufacturing, agriculture, and sports engaged Quire to prepare a scaled portfolio company for an M&A transaction, identify potential interested parties, and develop a process to exit the asset.
Our client sought a rapid exit and wanted Quire to think creatively about potential buyers to ensure strong competition for the asset. We were tasked with developing positioning & tactics that would permit the widest buyer interest in the asset.
We constructed a team of experts in preparing the client, materials, and logic to support a successful M&A process.
  • Complete repositioning and packaging to support robust buyer interest.
  • Detailed universe of potential buyers, relevant tactics, and process steps.
  • Sophisticated valuation analysis based on potential buyer universe and ability to pay.

We included world-class investment bankers to ensure our logic mapped precisely to potential buyer interest, behavior, and economic thinking.
