We primarily rely on secondary resources for our industry research. Our analysts know exactly what sources to refer to for reliable and up-to-date industry data.

We can also identify key industry players and conduct an insightful comparative analysis to paint a picture of the industry’s competitive landscape.
We prepare detailed financial models in both, MS Excel and Modano®, for investment banks, PE funds, Startups and Corporations. These financial models are of various type, depending on their end use. They may be used for M&A/ fund raising transactions, PE waterfall determination, business planning/target setting, internal business evaluation, and budgeting.
A standard three statement financial model includes Income Statement, Balance Sheet, Cash Flow Statement, Assumptions, and Schedules. We normally follow a bottom-up approach to build financial models, where we start by identifying key revenue and cost drivers and then work out the growth assumptions. In addition to these statements, we can also carry out further analyses, including, Key Ratios, DuPont, Breakeven and Payback Analyses; if required.
We provide end-to-end M&A and Fund-raising support to startups, corporations and investment banks – right from sourcing to final hand holding. Our transaction support process starts with a detailed assessment of the client business, including its key value drivers, growth potential, financial health, and key collaterals. Based on this understanding, we create a description of well-suited suitors/investors and carry out an extensive research to create a list of investors who may be interested in the transaction. We help companies establish contact with potential investors and join them in discussions with investors. Once the discussions reach advanced stages, we help businesses negotiate the final terms of the transaction and close the transaction on their behalf. In case of buy-side transactions, we also conduct in-depth financial due diligence of the target on behalf of the acquirer.
We prepare highly impactful CIMs to help businesses and investment banks effectively present investment opportunities to potential investors and suitors. CIMs include information on several aspects of the business, including basic description, operational details, Sales & Marketing information, financial information and Management & Team information. We prepare CIMs in presentation- or document-style and our CIMs have several graphs, charts, tables, and other visually appealing infographics.
We prepare intricate business valuation models using any of the commonly used valuation methodologies, including DCF valuation, Comparables valuation (listed and transaction comparables), and Sum of The Parts (SOTP) valuation. We start the valuation process by thoroughly reviewing the subject business and developing a granular understanding of its operations and key value drivers.
These insights are used as the basis for projecting the company’s cash flows and carrying out the DCF analysis. In case of comparables analysis, these insights are used to identify listed businesses that are similar to the target business, or to identify M&A transaction that involved similar businesses. The Identified businesses / transactions are assigned weights based on their similarity with the subject business and appropriate valuation multiples are calculated based on these weights.
We compile the results of the valuation exercise in a Valuation Report that elaborates the assumptions used for the valuation process, the approach followed for the valuation process and the key conclusions.
We prepare highly impactul pitch presentations, with several graphs, charts, tables, and other visually appealing infographics. Our pitch books are used by investment banks while making pitch presentations to potential clients for advising them on M&A transactions. Pitch books highlight the qualifications of an investment bank to advise on the transaction, given the bank’s understanding of the business and its previous involvement with similar deals. They discuss the investment banks experience & credentials, proposed strategy for completing the transaction, and the proposed timeline for completing the transaction process.
We offer customized research on companies and businesses operating all over the globe. Research includes finding key personnel, size of the company (Revenue, no. of employees, etc.), competitors and contact details of key members of the Company.
