Credo leads the market in strategic transaction work in our areas of expertise. For example, we work with or know nearly all of the major private equity houses with interests in business and support services, and have advised at all size levels from £10m to £1bn+ deal values.
We work buy-side and sell-side and give our clients hard-hitting and objective answers; as such, we tend only to be engaged sell-side for top quality businesses and our buy-side advice enables clients to back away early from bad deals and to focus hard on the best opportunities.
Our clients have commented that our commercial and operational due diligence work is more rigorous, detailed and insightful than that of any of our competitors, while those (corporate or buy-and-build private equity) clients using us for integration appreciate our 100% record of delivering agreed cost synergies and our willingness to go the extra mile to keep business running during a difficult time. Our work covers a mix of sector scanning and target identification, due diligence and transaction support, integration and post-deal strategy, and vendor due diligence and vendor support.
