Acquisitions are often the most efficient way for a firm to achieve its growth objectives and increase shareholder value. In the chemical industry, companies seeking to grow through acquisitions and buy-side advisory engage Grace Matthews for either broad-based acquisition searches, where we target a group of companies that fit predetermined criteria, or specific target projects, where we pursue one or two high-priority acquisition candidates.
Grace Matthews approaches acquisition searches – as with all projects — by creating a dedicated team that takes the time to develop a thorough understanding of the client’s business and growth objectives. This knowledge becomes the foundation that guides the whole process, enabling us to identify the best potential targets and then negotiate with the companies that offer the client the best fit with their business goals.
In specific target buy-side advisory projects, Grace Matthews focuses on one or two discrete candidates identified by our client as high priorities. Grace Matthews handles initial contacts, leads negotiations, supports due diligence, and closes the transaction. Our extensive corporate network and hard-earned chemical industry credibility can often open doors that are closed to others.
We have completed transactions with private, public, and large multinational corporations across the chemical value chain, throughout the U.S. and the world.
