Do you want to acquire a business, expand abroad or create a joint venture?
If you do not follow a structured process of selection, evaluation, negotiation and due diligence, you will lose time and money. You will not get the expected synergies, provided that you may not shift from predator to prey...
Are you looking for investment opportunities in private companies? Do you want to turn your skills and relationships to the development of a small business in Italy?
You will have an excellent potential for making money, maybe balancing current low interest rates and erratic stock markets. You can also diversify your investment portfolio and perhaps directly govern the fate of your money. But these opportunities will not materialize unless you have chosen the right company fits or you have followed a structured and careful process.

Finding a possible buyer isn’t enough: if you do not prepare the sale and you will not be prepared to dedicate to the process all the required skills and efforts, you will suffer your counterparty’s initiative with only two possible outcomes: a cheap price or the failure to complete the project.

Our marketing plan is structured to maximize the value of your company, to make sure that you will attract more potential buyers and to prepare the company to the due diligence process. Our ultimate goal is to help you sell your company when it will be fully ready to be sold, and when the time is best.
As Sun Tzu wrote, "Know your enemy": who better than a consultant serving business buyers can help when you want to dispose of your company?
Looking for a partner? Do you know what you offer? How can you convey your dream to him/her? How can you avoid in becoming a "master in someone else's home?"
With the partner you should share a portion, more or less long, of your business’ future: a wrong choice can lead to serious mishaps for your business and personal plan. Not only you risk losing control of the company, but also to have daily annoyances. On the other hand a new partner can bring expertise and money into your company (e.g. the private equity funds invest annually 40 billion Euros in 5,000 European companies), often fundamental factors to enable growth, globalization, profits. So do not hesitate to seek a partner, strategic or financial: just make sure that your new buddy is acceptable and that you have agreed balanced investment terms.
Equity Factory is ready to assist you: we want that the entrance of a new partner be a stimulus for your career and a boost for the value of your business and not a recurring nightmare.
Do you know the company you are buying? Do you know who is your likely partner? Your counterpart is concealing the truth or you are living in a dream? Why many due diligence reports contain mostly warnings and caveats? Perhaps because the audit firms tend not to provide opinions or points of view. In fact, some of their due diligence are only "diligent". For this we offer something that is rarely found on the market: an honest and clear opinion.
Equity Factory professionals managed more than one hundred due diligence, Therefore many banks and corporates asked us to perform analyses and investigations aimed at validating their strategies and to assure they have a qualified independent opinion.
Do you have a strategy? Can you explain it inside your company and to other stakeholders (banks, customers, suppliers, agents, partners...)? Is your strategy incorporated in a plan aimed at guiding daily management, being the base for the MBO system and monitoring the progress towards the goals? Do you know how much is worth your business and its strategy?
If the answer is always yes, probably no external unexpected event will catch you unprepared and you will know how to drive your business as a skilled captain in a stormy sea.
If you do not have a strategy (or you haven’t written it)… you’ll be the object for someone’s else strategy!
Something is wrong with your business? Are you losing money or having trouble paying suppliers timely? Are you in crisis? Banks do not want to renew the credit lines? Your management processes do not allow you to understand all business risks? Did you notice a temporary shortage of a manager for the financial and administrative area or the managing direction?
Call us and we will help you to understand which problems are emerging. If you want we can also support you in trying to resolve them and bring your company to the success it deserves.
We will provide you with a unique blend of thinking outside the box, deep managerial skills, high ethical standards, operational flexibility and desire to see our customer’s projects completed timely.
