    Company Sales and Divestures
    Envoy Advisors provides discreet, senior-level representation to private and public companies. We undertake our own review of the business, develop appropriate materials, and work with our clients to create a customized approach that meets their objectives. We aggressively advocate for our clients during the marketing and negotiation phases of the transaction and all the way through closing. We have an extensive transaction history and resources to help us identify appropriate contacts at financial and strategic investors alike, making us an ideal fit for small and mid-sized companies.

    Business Valuations and Fairness Opinions
    Value is the centerpiece of every important business transaction. Our formal opinions of value are grounded in the latest valuation theories and honed by the practical, diverse experience of our employees.

    Rules against unfair treatment to shareholders apply to publicly traded companies and privately held businesses faced with the fiduciary responsibility to address real or apparent conflicts of interest. Many transactions require an independent opinion of fairness.

    We regularly write opinions for boards of directors, special committees of the board, shareholders, trusts and courts of law. Clients rely on our opinions in various transactions, including:

    • Sale or merger of business resulting in majority or minority of combination
    • Acquisition of related party or consideration in strategic alliance
    • Exchanges of securities in recapitalizations and reorganizations

    Mergers and Acquisitions
    Envoy Advisors offers extensive assistance for companies interested in merging with or acquiring other businesses, including strategy, valuation, due diligence, structuring, negotiations, and financing. The transaction (or transactions) may include buying minority or majority stakes in other companies, combining or joint venturing with strategic partners, or entering into strategic alliances. Our areas of expertise include:

    • Mergers with public and private companies
    • Acquisitions of minority or majority stakes in other companies
    • Joint ventures
    • Strategic alliances
    • Leveraged buyouts
    • Management buyouts
    • Capital raising

    Post Merger Integration Planning and Execution
    Envoy Advisors can help lead and facilitate the overall integration process related to a business merger or acquisition. We bring the skills, experience, and breadth and depth of knowledge necessary to:

    • Manage the process that ultimately results in a comprehensive post-merger integration plan and allows you to achieve the business objectives that originally drove the transaction;
    • Define the communication and feedback mechanisms that announce the post-merger integration plan details to stakeholders and that track progress and resolve issues as they arise; and
    • Ensure that your merger or acquisition transaction has the best possible chance of being successful by preparing detailed, prioritized, and scheduled short and long-term action plans for performance measures and goals, processes, information systems, and organization design; information system requirements; detailed material and information flows; and detailed organizational and training requirements.
