Corporate M&A

M&A is often a central part of a business’s strategy, whether a corporation is looking for increased distribution, expansion into adjacent products or markets, innovation, or a multiple arbitrage. Stax has more than 20 years of M&A experience, providing advisory support to corporate clients ranging from Fortune 500 to mid-market companies, at every step of the investment lifecycle. By developing fact-based analyses and insights, we help executives and their teams make smarter M&A decisions, faster.

What We Do

Due Diligence – Stax delivers commercial due diligence with speed, transparency, and collaboration to provide the right assistance in a deadline-driven deal situation. We bring content and facts to generate a substantive fact base and insights for the specific deal, and are a thought partner in the M&A process. Our process ranges from back-testing strengths of customers and core profitability, to market overviews, testing management and seller growth assumptions, and analyzing true overlapping value.

Industry and Acquisition Screening – Stax’s data-driven framework for acquisition screening blends strategic thinking, a defined research approach, and common sense practicality to produce actionable results, fast. We assess and prioritize acquisition strategies, define key candidate criteria, identify potential targets, and conduct initial candidate screening. This gives our clients the knowledge to make better informed acquisition decisions to meet their objectives.

Divestiture Strategies – Stax helps management teams develop strategies to thoughtfully divest assets, enabling management teams to focus on creating value.
