The Problem: Sell-side M&A processes are complex, but largely managed using only Microsoft Office / e-mail.
To simply arrive at the IOI stage in the process of selling a company requires significant back-and-forth between bankers and buyers, consuming hundreds of hours of valuable time:
Can software be applied to a sell-side process to improve efficiency and effectiveness? The answer is a resounding YES.
FlowDeal provides a solution to accomplish this:
- WHAT: A Web-based platform that allows investment bankers to manage M&A processes more efficiently, from the distribution of teasers through the IOI stage
- HOW: Allows M&A investment bankers and potential buyers to exchange information on a common platform as opposed to via e-mail
- WHO: Developed by an actual deal professional — who truly understands sell-side M&A processes — alongside experienced technologists from the Financial Services industry
- WHY: We’re about to enter the third decade of the 21st century, so it’s time for M&A investment bankers to begin truly leveraging the power of technology to do their jobs more effectively and efficiently
The target market for FlowDeal is any investment bank / M&A advisory firm / business broker that runs sell-side M&A processes that include ~20 or more potential buyers. This can range from 1-2 person shops to bulge-bracket investment banks.
The buyer universe (Private Equity firms, strategic acquirers) are “takers” of the platform when they engage in a process that is using FlowDeal.
