SUCCESS FROM THE START
Providing the best buy-side M&A advice and execution to middle market companies is our hallmark, and it's the platform upon which our firm was originally founded. DCA Partners has built its reputation by helping companies accomplish their aggressive growth objectives through an intelligent combination of internal expansion and well executed acquisition–driven growth strategies.
Given that our Partners have completed nearly 50 buy–side acquisitions as executive officers of operating companies, they understand that a successful transaction begins and ends with a thoughtful and well–executed strategy – including an integration strategy.
DCA’s unique approach to buy–side engagements engineers "Success" into the process from start to finish. Every buy–side engagement begins with a thorough analysis and understanding of the client’s overall business strategy, organizational competencies, core leverageable assets, and strategic gaps. With this knowledge in hand, an acquisition profile is developed, and correspondingly, ideal acquisition candidates are targeted.
Once the target is identified and "sold" on the opportunity, DCA will shepherd the transaction to a successful closing and consummation—assisting the client in negotiating optimal terms, overseeing the due diligence process, managing the legal documentation process, and aggressively working to insulate the client from post–closing risks.
Moreover, most unsuccessful acquisitions fail not because they were ill–conceived, but rather, because they were poorly executed. In view of that, DCA will often partner with the client’s management team, where appropriate, to orchestrate a smooth and positive post–closing integration plan.
