It all starts with a concise strategic thought.

Equinot M&A strategy consulting vs mergers and acquisitions advisory firms
M&A advisory firms take the role of an intermediary and have as an objective matching buyers and sellers. They are paid in the form of a transaction fee and are for the most part acting independently from their client. Since their fee depends on the value of the deal at closing, they are almost exclusively working on the sell-side or less often targeted buy-side.
Our M&A consulting is very different from that. We are not intermediaries but a service provider, paid by for work we do for our clients. We work side by side with our clients to prepare them and build their M&A muscles to be able to carry out broad M&A activities without having to hire intermediaries.
Equinot M&A strategy consulting vs M&A consulting firms
On the other side of the spectrum, you will often find the term M&A consulting being associated with accounting and management consulting firms. In almost all cases they will only provide you with consulting work later in the M&A process, solving specific problems related to Due Diligence and post-transaction integration. Equinot is here to fill the gap and provide you with the preparation for the whole process starting from the earliest stage when your future M&A success is just a vague idea.
