Alarian sources and executes M&A transactions that deliver strong strategic and economic value for our clients. Our experience extends firsthand knowledge of the ecosystem which connects each of our client sectors, providing insightful expertise based on operational understanding. We work diligently to provide acquisition strategies that align with client goals and impact financial gain.

Alarian has built a process with proven results to identify, optimize and structure multiple opportunities against a client –centric matrix of strategic, financial and operating goals. The process is executed by the senior executive team knowledgeable about the industries, savvy in making contact with targets and highly effective in converting target acquisitions to real sellers for our buy side clients.

The main benefit of the Alarian approach is that the acquirer may anonymously pursue discussions with multiple targets not actively engaged in selling.

Alarian uncovers targets through its network gained from years as operating executives and visibility within industry associations.

The Alarian  team has been highly successful in identifying hundreds of potential acquisition candidates for our buy side clients, initiating contact, collecting preliminary information, valuing and determining strategic and operating fit and preparing Capsule Summaries, which include:

  • Qualitative summary of company operations
  • Historical income statements
  • Balance sheet
  • Top 10 clients
  • Top 10 vendors
  • Historical service/product line revenue
  • Branch/subsidiary revenue
  • Employee breakdown
  • Management Biographies
  • Fleet characterization
  • Maintenance/growth capex
  • Safety records
  • Acquisition Assessment

We are able to bring targets to the table and set valuation expectations for the target/seller. Our process relies on intense scrutiny and analysis and the recommendations are compelling.
