Every corporate finance deal brings a specific set of challenges requiring specialist knowledge and experience. Braxton Alliance member firms provide
businesses with corporate finance advice and support
across a range of issues, drawing on the resources,
expertise and experience from around the world.
Choosing the right adviser to execute a corporate
finance assignment efficiently, while protecting
confidentiality, is the key to success. Clients need a
full range of services – from company valuation to
identifying and screening prospects. Knowing the
pitfalls and potential problems, spotting and
capitalising on strengths – while safeguarding against
weaknesses – can make the difference between a
successful and a poor deal.
Braxton Alliance member firms have considerable
experience of selling businesses. They know how
sensitive a disposal can be. Added experience as fund
managers and corporate advisers, helps greatly in
knowing what investors want to see in a proposal.
Specialists from within the Braxton Alliance network
can identify investors and work with local or foreign
advisers to conclude a transaction. They can also
advise on the most suitable source of private equity
and ensure support from foreign investors.
INITIAL OFFERINGS – IPOs

the USA, The AIM market of the London Stock
Exchange, NASDAQ Europe, Neuer Markt Germany,

in key financial centres.
• Braxton Alliance’s global coverage means that a
member firm leading an IPO, can work with member
firm colleagues across the world to execute
transactions where understanding and knowledge
of the local stock exchange is vital.
ACQUISITION AND JOINT VENTURE
Sale of business: Getting the best price is frequently
the primary consideration, although of increasing
importance are issues such as strategic fit, long term
growth and sustained employment.
Acquisition: Corporate acquisitions are time
consuming and therefore effective planning is the key
to success. If the target business has not been
identified, access to an effective database and local
knowledge is important.
Joint Venture Partners: Completing an agreement
with a foreign JV partner demands knowledge of local
laws and customs as well as verification of the integrity
and substance of potential partners. HLB International’s
global network of independent member firms can
provide these services around the world.
From within its network, Braxton Alliance can help
• Start-up or early stage funding
• Development capital
• Replacement capital
• Management buy-outs
• Management buy-ins
• Turnaround management and corporate recovery
All aspects of corporate finance involve due diligence
when operations and management are examined and
material facts verified. Member firm specialists
regularly undertake due diligence for clients.
