The Idea Behind

Mergers, Acquisitions & Disposals

Amphora Capital applies experience, sector and regional expertise as well as sound judgment in order to provide our clients with insightful advice that leads to a genuine competitive advantage. We are rigorous and determined in our pursuit of this aim.

Our advice is independent and without conflict. We cover all areas of M&A including acquisition (“buy-side”) advice and sale and divestiture (“sell-side”) advice as well as ongoing strategic advice to ensure that owners and managers are best positioned to grow their businesses.
In our M&A assignments we pride ourselves on our ability to form a dedicated transaction team of experienced practitioners even if we have to retain dedicated external expertise.

Buy-side Advice
The present volatile environment and turbulent debt markets have made the need for an experienced buy-side adviser more important than ever. Amphora Capital has been very active in successfully providing its advice to corporations, family offices and financial institutions throughout the economic downturn. Our accumulated experience and detailed market knowledge makes us the preferred buy-side adviser for clients determined to ensure a reasonable outcome.

Sell-side advice
Understanding a business is fundamental to extracting the most of its value at the time of disposal. We ensure we have a detailed and extensive knowledge of the business in advance of launching any sale process. Amphora Capital works jointly with management teams in crafting the right sale strategy and messages for both potential buyers and providers of external finance. Our sector experience is a crucial component of this process.

A successful sale needs at least one, and preferably numerous, enthusiastic buyers with available funds. Our operations and extensive partnering network throughout Europe enable us to identify and engage with the best international buyers.

Amphora Capital’s creative approach, flexibility and independence also enable us to initiate multi-track sale processes that involve advising our client on the best course of action, be it a potential outright sale, MBO or a re-capitalisation. Our execution expertise covers all potential outcomes.
