Thinking ahead to help you structure your transactions effectively
The Company had an income of approximately £60 million but, as a social enterprise, any profits have to be reinvested back into the business or the community. Provide contacted Price Bailey to advise on its intention to use part of its profits to grow by acquisition.
We led the management team through a series of discovery meetings in order to understand where Provide was weak and where they were strong – in order to fully understand how an acquisition could fit and what that acquisition would add to the business.
This had to meet Provide’s objectives as a CIC, whilst also help to spread their risk inherent in the business and provide a platform for future growth.
We worked with the board to develop a long term strategy, which helped define the type of acquisition that would best suit the enterprise’s values and enhance its services into the future.
Once this strategy was agreed, we set about finding suitable acquisition targets on the market which met the Company’s strategic objectives.
Our search was guided by a bespoke investment filter which was able to show how the risks and rewards of individual acquisitions, commercial investments, joint ventures and growth opportunities sat alongside each other individually and as a collective.
This allowed us to focus on the opportunities that were most relevant to the strategy and to structure a portfolio of investments that would drive future growth in an informed, logical and commercial way rather than working transaction-by-transaction. This filter created an in-depth understanding of suitable targets for both us as advisors and for Provide. The foundations we had created with Provide made the off-market search a much easier process.
