Impact Investing

We seek to incorporate Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance (ESG) factors into our financial advisory services and solutions for clients. We aim to work with and support companies that have good corporate governance, positive environmental and social objectives, and seek to integrate ESG practices into their organization.

We provide investment solutions that integrate ESG factors, perform ESG due diligence for private placements and M&A transactions, and provide advisory services on reporting practices and sustainability standards.

Private Placements

We arrange private placements of equity and/or debt to:

  • Finance growth and acquisitions
  • Assist with recapitalization or capital restructuring programs
  • Broaden and diversify a company’s shareholder base

Our extensive network of contacts with institutional, corporate, and individual providers of capital enables us to achieve optimal placements based on our clients’ objectives.

We diligently manage the private placement process, from preparing an offering memorandum describing our clients’ companies and the transaction, to contacting and marketing the offering to potential investors, and ultimately negotiating terms and facilitating a timely closing.

Mergers & Acquisitions

We start by understanding our clients’ businesses and objectives in order to identify strategic or financial buyers that will maximize the value of their business. We achieve this by conducting a professionally managed sales process that involves:

  • Valuing the business
  • Preparing a confidential information memorandum (“CIM”) that describes the business and the value proposition to potential buyers
  • Identifying, contacting, and negotiating with potential buyers
  • Coordinating the subsequent due diligence process
  • Assisting your company and advisors in closing the transaction

For clients seeking to acquire a business, we conduct an acquisition search, provide valuation analysis, advise on and negotiate the transaction structure and, when needed, obtain acquisition financing.

Financial Advisory Services

Bengur Bryan performs valuations that support a variety of purposes, including mergers and acquisitions, divestitures, litigation, and estate, gift, and income tax planning. Our financial and analytical tools, in combination with our market understanding, enable us to provide our clients with straightforward advice regarding the value of their businesses.

We also provide fairness opinions to support M&A transactions.

Restructuring Services

Bengur Bryan provides restructuring services with particular expertise in managing M&A for distressed companies, financial restructuring with lenders and other capital providers, strategic capital events and liquidity preservation.
