Firelight Partners works on merger and acquisition transactions on both the sell-side and buy-side. Our team is focused on helping our clients navigate the complexities of selling and acquiring businesses.

Sell-Side Advisory

Firelight Partners represents private companies as they seek to maximize shareholder value through a liquidity event. Our knowledge, experience and relationships enable us to find the right strategic and financial acquirers for our clients. We adapt each sale process to reflect our client's situation in order to achieve a successful outcome that meets the client's objectives.

Our process begins with a thorough analysis of the company, the competitive environment and the market in which the company operates. We then create marketing materials describing the company and highlights of the opportunity. Leveraging our industry relationships and our database of strategic and financial acquirers, we create a broad list of targeted buyers. We reach out to the prospects to generate interest and to provide preliminary information. We work closely with our clients to evaluate all viable offers. We then represent and support our clients from the initiation of negotiations, through securing of letters of intent, during due diligence and finally to consummation of a transaction.

Buy-Side Advisory

Many companies wish to pursue strategic acquisitions in an effort to grow their business. Firelight Partners works closely with our clients to successfully identify and acquire companies that meet growth and value creation objectives.

We begin the process by working with our clients to formulate an acquisition strategy and develop specific acquisition criteria. Through extensive research, we then identify potential acquisition candidates. We contact their decision makers and begin a dialogue to qualify them as desirable targets. We then support our clients during due diligence, including analyzing and modeling financial data. We work closely with our clients to structure the offer and negotiate terms. We then manage the process to facilitate an orderly and timely closing.  

Our comprehensive, resourceful and innovative approach to acquisitions provides considerable value to clients desiring to increase growth and profitability and to build on existing corporate strengths and capabilities.
