Common Sense Advisory, Inc., an independent research and consulting firm, announces its new Mergers & Acquisition (M & A) Consulting Program, dedicated to helping translation and localization companies identify the strategic partnerships and transactions which consolidate their business or move them into broader markets.
Introduced in response to requests from companies that want to grow, want to enter new markets, or expand existing ones, and entrepreneurs who may want to sell their firms, Common Sense Advisory’s M & A Consulting Program offers:
- Valuation and market assessment based on the sophisticated methodologies it developed for tracking publicly traded companies such as Lionbridge and SDL
- Introduction to and support for the M & A process
- Confidential research and presentation of Memoranda of Sale and Acquisition Specifications to interested parties
- Facilitation of the process of due diligence and the closing transaction
“By being able to save our Clients substantial time and cost in what is sometimes an unfulfilled process, advising them on processes with which they may be unfamiliar and assuring objectivity throughout, we can act as an ‘honest broker’ and add real value to the M & A activity,” comments the firm’s founder and president, Donald A. DePalma. “I am also pleased to announce that Hedley Rees-Evans, one of the language industry’s most experienced executives, has joined Common Sense Advisory to develop this new service into a powerful solution to one of the market’s most critical needs.”
Common Sense Advisory’s M & A Consulting Program will assist translation and localization service providers that are contemplating investments, strategic partnerships, mergers, and acquisitions or that are looking to enhance their organizational effectiveness in an existing business unit or portfolio company.
