Club Acquisitions

Investor-Initiated Acquisition Process

Buy – Side Assistance:

Our Buy-Side Assistance services ensure that our clients navigate their possible investment in Sports Clubs with the utmost safety and efficiency. We ensure that they identify bespoke investment opportunities and receive the most favourable terms and pricing, ensuring at the same time that any possible pitfalls are avoided diligently.

Our services are tailored to fit the individual needs of the particular transaction with which we are assisting and usually include the following steps:

Step 1: Deal Strategy

We work alongside you to develop a deal strategy that is in line with your vision, as well as a clear capital allocation plan.       

Step 2: Identification of Targets

Utilizing our borderless network in the sports industry, we identify the existing opportunities and prioritize the targets on a “best-fit” basis.

Step 3: Evaluation of Targets

We appraise the preferred target/s through a complete review of the Club’s value drivers and build different scenario models to calculate potential returns. At the same time, we oversee the data room process and perform financial due diligence.

Step 4: Execution of Deal

We submit the Non-Binding Bid to the Target’s advisers and build robust and adaptable cash flow forecast models. We negotiate and execute the deal, concurrently addressing any issues that arise from our additional due diligence work.

Step 5: Maximization of Value

We develop an effective implementation plan for Day 1 and a comprehensive view of the newly-acquired Club’s operating model so as to minimize disruption.
