Meta specialises in generating successful exits for private owners, corporates and private equity backed enterprises alike.
We work with our clients to develop an appropriate strategy to generate successful exits. In many cases we are working with companies that are looking to exit in several years' time. The timing of the approach to exit is a key determinant in its success.
We work with our client to derive a list of potential strategic purchasers. In some instances these come from the client’s own contacts, but in all cases purchasers are derived from our own extensive and focused research.
Our approach is to work with our clients to produce an information memorandum on the business. This is a document that sets out the business in a positive manner but does not shy away from key potential issues. This document is sent to the potential purchasers under an appropriate confidentiality agreement and is the major document upon which potential purchasers are encouraged to bid. By keeping several bidders actively involved we aim to create a competitive environment thus improving the exit value for our clients.
We stay closely involved throughout the transaction, frequently unlocking situations between lawyers or principals.

"We are very grateful to Peter Counsell for his experienced support during the negotiations. Meta had a very difficult role because they were heavily involved in negotiating in two cultures."
