Horizon Partners provides sell-side and buy-side M&A advisory services to successful businesses in the Digital Media, Interactive Marketing, Mobile, and Software industries. We bring patience and discretion to help our clients determine the appropriate time to explore and, when the opportunity arises, execute transactions with strategic or financial buyers.
Our sell-side advisory deal processes take a comprehensive approach to maximizing value for our clients.
At Horizon, we only engage a client when we have a deep preexisting knowledge of its market and business model. This allows us to accurately project the client's market opportunities and optimize their strategic positioning, thereby maximizing enterprise valuation. During each engagement, we produce thorough marketing materials and financial analysis that bridge the client’s past success with their future potential.
We use our industry expertise and relationships to outline the set of potential buyers for every client. In some cases the universe of qualified buyers is small. In others, it is vast. In all cases, we persistently and articulately communicate the client's strategic value to the key decision makers at target buyers.
We structure every deal process to engage as many qualified buyers as possible. Our transaction timelines ensure that buyers move forward in parallel, and our deal processes typically yield multiple offers. This creates negotiating leverage and allows the client to selectively move forward with only the most attractive potential buyers.
We are intimately involved in every aspect of negotiations and due diligence. After selecting the best set of buyers for contract negotiations, we creatively identify the deal structure that best meets the client’s unique interests. At the same time, we take a hands-on approach in working through the issues that inevitably arise in due diligence.
We strive to make every client a reference client. We are dedicated to doing whatever it takes to achieve an exceptional outcome for each client.
