Cebron Sources

Cebron sources acquisition candidates in the client’s target markets and industries with annual revenues ranging from $30 million to $500 million. Cebron Group has developed a set of financial, geographic and management criteria designed to assist clients in sourcing, evaluating, and financing multiple acquisition candidates. These criteria evaluate a variety of factors, including:

  • historical and projected financial performance
  • internal rate of return, return on assets and return on revenue
  • experience and reputation of the candidate’s management and operations
  • composition and size of the candidate’s customer base
  • whether the geographic location of the candidate will enhance or expand the client’s market area or ability to attract other acquisition candidates
  • whether the acquisition will augment or increase the client’s market share or services offered or help protect the client’s existing customer base
  • potential synergies and cost reductions gained by combining the acquisition candidate with the client’s existing operations
  • liabilities, contingent or otherwise, of the acquisition candidate.

Sourcing Advantage

Cebron has developed an extremely effective method of identifying acquisition targets in specific industries that enable us to attract well-positioned prospective acquisition targets. We identify potential acquisition candidates through active origination and dialogue with numerous business owners and executives, bankers, lawyers, advisors, and management teams.

Sourcing Unlisted Acquisition Opportunities for Clients

We have developed a broad network of contacts within the investment, commercial banking, private equity and investment management communities that enable us to attract well-positioned prospective acquisition targets. Additionally, we generate information from Cebron Group’s network of accountants, consultants, lawyers and management teams of portfolio companies and other companies.
