Selling & Buying Companies

Effective Capital advises and supports its clients in their mergers and acquisitions operations, both in France and in the United States through its offices in Paris, New York and Miami.

Our international dimension and our sectoral expertise constitute definite assets and allow us to specifically target businesses to meet our client’s prospects.

With over 30 deals made over the past few years, our team has proven itself in the field of mergers and acquisitions and now provides its know-how to its entrepreneurs’ clients.

We bring our expertise in both Sell-side and Buy-side transaction advisory without any particularly targeted sector. We have advised many entrepreneurs in various sectors such as logistics, construction, luxury, entertainment and technology.
The process of selling a company is complex, disciplined and individualized but the result is simply stated: we get the best price for our client.
When selling a company or corporate asset, we evaluate and recommend financial and strategic options, advise on the right sales process for the particular situation, prepare an offering memorandum constructed to appeal to potential buyers, and most importantly, communicate our client’s value to the most likely—not merely the most obvious—buyers.
We structure the process to fit the client—not the other way around. The client’s strategic advantage determines our recommendation of a full auction, a limited auction, or a negotiated transaction (sometimes called a pre-emptive transaction). Our experience and insight ensure the right outcome.
When advising buyers we deploy our knowledge of the media and digital media market and our in-depth understanding of our client’s acquisition strategy to find the right company or asset at the right price. When the fit is right, we help structure a transaction that resolves complex issues and produces a solution that works.
