Why businesses choose Regent for technology M&A expertise

There is a lot at stake if you are looking at selling or acquiring a business, divesting your company of one, or financing growth. What is at stake, however, is always different —even if we consider only technology M&A deals. What matters to your business is a unique combination of different priorities.

 

This is why, in the 30 years that we have been advising businesses and helping them achieve the best technology M&A deal, our guiding principle has always been:

 

We will listen — and act to achieve the outcome that is optimal for you.

Five Things to Think About

It might all be about price; but more likely there are other considerations of equal importance to you, such as the welfare of employees or a timely conclusion. Any number of considerations may affect what counts as true value for your particular transaction.

 

Our clients will tell you that we have helped them find the deal that gets the balance right for them; and that they were confident in choosing us for the following reasons:

1. Sector specialists

We focus exclusively on the technology, communications and digital media sectors, which means that we understand how to position and convey the value you offer (either as a technology business or to technology businesses).

2. Trusted brand

Credibility is important in this business, so here is our track record:

 

  • We have been doing this since 1987.
  • We have completed some 400 technology M&A assignments.
  • Many have been cross-border and they cover some 40 countries.
3. Partner-led throughout

Every transaction is personally managed by one of the Partners who lead the Regent team — because having the right expertise on your side is critical. Your Partner will provide vital insight and guidance at every stage, using all of their knowledge and experience to:

 

  • Help you decide when to go to market and what targets to approach.
  • Maintain your anonymity when initially assessing interest.
  • Build rapport with the bidding parties.
  • Avoid pitfalls that leave you in a weak negotiating position.
  • Assess opportunities honestly, openly and realistically.
  • Progress negotiations in a timely manner.
  • Deliver the best technology M&A deal for you.
4. Research-led insight

One of our Partners is dedicated exclusively to research. His deep and detailed knowledge of market realities and trends informs all of our valuations, go-to-market advice and negotiating strategies. It is also a core foundation of TechBase, our comprehensive database of European technology M&A-related transactions.

5. Tried-and-tested approach

Over 30 years our Partners have developed unique tools and honed an approach that works to achieve the best results for you.
