Mergers and Acquisitions

Griffin is a leading boutique mergers and acquisitions (M&A) advisor providing dedicated service to the owners and management teams of our clients. Our M&A practice is led by experienced senior bankers who have devoted their careers to developing deep professional relationships and building specialized knowledge of buyers, trends and perspectives relevant to our industry and sector-specific areas of expertise.

We work with owners and management teams to understand the goals of the owner. Many owners desire to seek maximum value for personal liquidity; others seek to preserve their legacy and maximize community or social impact. Other times, our clients look to acquire targets to increase scale before seeking an exit plan. Regardless of the objective, we partner with our clients to provide a set of strategies to accomplish their goals.

Our M&A advisory solutions include:

  • Sell-side M&A advisory: Providing Wall Street quality to lower middle and middle market companies
  • Buy-side M&A advisory: Identifying potential targets and negotiating optimal structure in combination with our capital raising solutions to find the best debt sources available in the market.
  • Divestitures and spin-offs: Increasing liquidity or unlocking equity value by focusing on core capabilities.
  • Management Buy-outs or ESOPs: Allowing an owner to transfer the firm in a succession plan to a trusted management team and employees, rewarding them for years of dedication and hard work.
