Corporate Finance Services
Owner Managed and Family-Owned Businesses
Owner Managed and Family-Owned businesses face a unique set of advantages and challenges when considering an investment transaction from outside the family or ‘inner circle’.
The FTI Consulting Corporate Finance team has many years of experience working with Owner Managers and Family Businesses, including two recent successful transactions, Project Marathon and Project Musk. We understand what investors or partners are looking for, where potential deal breakers could be and how to ‘package’ a business for investment for maximum return to shareholders.
We believe that there is no one-size-fits-all transaction process and that a successful transaction requires a well-crafted strategy and well executed bespoke process. Our approach is therefore to journey with the shareholders every step of the way, right from the very early stages of fully understanding the business and desired outcomes of the transaction to develop the most appropriate transaction strategy and timeline, to negotiation and closure of the deal.
We provide hands-on, expert advice throughout the transaction process.
The FTI team have excellent relationships with transactors in all of the large and most active Private Equity houses in South Africa, who are a key group of potential investors in Owner Managed and Family-Owned businesses. Our networks also connect into corporates and multinational investors and we can leverage the networks and contacts of our colleagues from our offices in 29 major financial centres across the globe.
