Cap Expand Partners announce fresh new approach to business acquisitions, financing and exit strategies

RIEMST, Belgium, 27-Jul-2021 — /EPR FINANCIAL NEWS/ — Financial consulting company Cap Expand Partners are pleased to announce a fresh new approach to business acquisitions, financing, and exit strategies. The company offers exciting windows of opportunity for mid-sized businesses considering expansion overseas, particularly in the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxemburg (Benelux), and also for independent, fundless sponsors.

According to Managing Director Sergio van Luijk, Cap Expand Partners have the experience to help businesses with insufficient resources or local expertise manage cross-border acquisitions. The company’s network of debt and equity providers are also proving invaluable to independent sponsors, for whom raising capital on a deal-by-deal basis can be time-consuming, leading to many missed transaction opportunities.

“The independent (or fundless) sponsor model is still a novelty concept, and many individuals working on transactions fail to raise the necessary funding on time,” says van Luijk, “which can be detrimental to their reputation in future deals. That’s why we encourage them to discuss financing options with us before signing a letter of intent.”

As pandemic-related lockdown measures subside, many companies are renewing their quest for growth abroad. Due to Brexit, an increasing number of foreign companies are now setting down roots in the Benelux when expanding to Europe:

“The U.K. is no longer a first port of call for many of our international clients seeking to gain foothold in Europe,” adds van Luijk. “Most companies we speak with were previously unaware of the Benelux’ favorable investment climate, which is why we are temporarily offering qualified companies affordable market entry and business valuation quickscans.”

Cap Expand Partners’ Corporate Development & Acquisition Services build upon the client’s existing strategy. At this time, the company will educate the client on local market considerations, assess the industry potential, analyze possible entry strategies, and if applicable, identify and approach potential acquisition targets. Cap Expand Partners will then manage the deal process, value the company, coordinate with existing in-house and external local counsel, draft offer letters, and conduct negotiations. Post-closing assistance and capital raisings are also offered as required.

Cap Expand Partners also help raise capital on behalf of independent sponsors. Unlike traditional private equity teams, these are experienced individuals who do not have a dedicated pool of funds and raise financing on a deal-by-deal basis to acquire and manage companies. This allows the client to focus on sourcing new deals, and creating value for the companies that they already own. Additionally, Cap Expand Partners educate their investor network on independent sponsor economics, create credibility towards counterparties, and ultimately streamline these complex transactions. The company recently published an article on the independent sponsor model.

Syniti’s CEO TO CEO Podcast to feature in-depth, conversational interviews with leading CEOs

BOSTON, MA, U.S.A., 18-Sep-2020 — /EPR FINANCIAL NEWS/ — Syniti, a leader in enterprise data management, announced today the launch of a global weekly podcast series, the “CEO TO CEO Podcast.” This new podcast focuses on delivering exclusive insights for complex, C-suite challenges, including mergers, acquisitions and divestitures (MA&D). The series will feature interviews with some of the world’s top CEOs and thought leaders, many of whom led history-making transactions.

The podcast will launch Wednesday, September 23, 2020, featuring in-depth, conversational interviews with leaders like:

  • Joe Tucci, former Chairman of the Board of Directors, President and Chief Executive Officer of EMC Corporation, now Dell EMC, and Chairman and Co-Founder of Bridge Growth Partners
  • Paula Tolliver, former Corporate Vice President and CIO and CDO of Intel Corporation and former Corporate Vice President of Business Services and CIO at the Dow Chemical Company, and
  • Josh Moffitt, Founder and President of Silverton Mortgage

“History has proven that during times of rapid changes and unknowns, such as the 2008 financial crisis, organizations look to MA&D to both protect and grow their business,” said Kevin Campbell, CEO of Syniti and host of the podcast series. “We are pleased to launch this new podcast series to help companies face these challenges with an insider’s perspective, and help business become more resilient through M&A&D.”

According to EY’s Global Capital Confidence Barometer, in today’s economic environment, more than half of executives globally are opting to transform through transactions and plan an acquisition this year. McKinsey & Company also reported that companies that regularly and systematically pursue moderately sized M&A deliver better shareholder returns than companies that don’t.

“The complexities of MA&D are daunting every time,” said Chris Knerr, Syniti Chief Data Officer. “Data is increasingly essential to delivering successful transactions. We are bringing together leaders who have successfully led global transformations to dive deeper into the power of data to accelerate time-to-value and greatly reduce execution risk. With more than 24 years of business expertise in data and end-to-end conversion technology, we’ve seen firsthand how data can increase transparency, drive business value capture, and support integration strategies that speed and smooth business transactions of all sizes.”

According to Edison Research, podcasts reach over 100 million Americans each month. “Podcasts are available where the listener is, whether at home, commuting, in-between business meetings, after dinner or with early morning coffee,” said Rex Ahlstrom, Syniti Chief Strategy & Technology Officer. “By leveraging this medium, we can further help business leaders access critical insights from top M&A&D practitioners wherever they are – at home, in the office, or on-the-go.”
