Research is at the heart of everything we do — and it shows. We are regularly approached by technology industry analysts for comment on industry trends, or asked to speak at industry events.
What does this mean for you, when you choose us as your M&A advisory firm?
Every assignment starts with a kickoff meeting that our Research Partner attends. He is directly involved in understanding your needs, and informs your strategy with his extensive market knowledge. Following the meeting, he directs further market research specific to your situation and requirements (for example, by focusing on your specific technology sub-sector or specific countries important to you).
In other words: our M&A advisory service is highly tailored to your needs.
If your aim is to acquire a technology business, the set of possible targets may be huge. So it helps to have research on your side that uses a wide range of sources. With Regent these range from analyst reports and market data feeds, to connections made at trade shows, conferences and other industry events. Because of our reputation, our research happens not just in the office but out there in the market.
In other words: You will be hard-pressed to find an M&A advisory firm more able to source a comprehensive list of relevant acquisition targets, putting you in the strongest possible negotiating position.
If you are selling a technology business or divesting your company of one, you want an M&A advisory firm that can set up a competitive market for you. The strength and credibility of our research matters in two ways:
Whether you are acquiring or selling a business, it helps to be able to point to similar deals to back up your negotiating position. Knowing in general what is happening in the technology market is not enough; you want to be able to point to data that is directly comparable: the more specific, the better.
No-one has more comprehensive and specific data about technology M&A deals in Europe than we do, thanks to our proprietary TechBase repository.
TechBase is not the only research resource that we use, but as the most comprehensive database of its kind it gives us a big head start in sourcing target lists, spotting trends, performing valuations, and backing up our negotiation on your behalf.
