The Cebron Advantage
Maximize Value Through Strategic Acquisitions
Our strategies can significantly increase the value of a client’s company. When multiple companies are combined, they generally increase in value, sell for higher multiples and are more attractive to corporate and private equity acquirers or public capital markets.
Finance Acquisitions to Build Value for IPO or Private Sale
The Firm actively cultivates its relationships with major commercial banks, insurance companies, private equity, pension funds, sovereign wealth funds, asset managers, firms and institutional investors that can finance acquisitions for our clients. By combining our industry team efforts with our established network of relationships, we have a differentiated capability to source acquisition opportunities and play a key role in assisting clients in building substantial value in their company in preparation for sale or IPO.
