We specialize in matters involving corporate control. Whether in mergers, acquisitions, divestitures, proxy solicitations, takeover defense, going private transactions, or management buy-outs, our firm and our principals have been active participants in the arena. We have conceptualized and led major trends in the proactive creation of value for shareholders. RA Capital Advisors provides the full range of merger and acquisition advisory services – including fairness opinions – to company buyers, sellers and shareholders.
We assist our clients in all facets of the strategy and execution of M&A transactions – from identification of acquisition targets or prospective buyers, through due diligence, negotiation, documentation and closing of the deal.
We take a long-term view and seek to create lasting value for our clients. We will advise clients not to pursue or consummate a transaction to the extent that we do not believe the transaction will be in their best long-term interests.
One of our core competencies is proactive strategic targeting of companies that may not be for sale. Our principals have participated in numerous contests for corporate control. We have a proven ability to identify and advise on buyout opportunities.
We also advise our clients in defense of unsolicited takeover advances that offer inadequate value for shareholders. We can provide unique insight to the strategies and tactics that an unsolicited suitor might apply.
Our clients rely on our discretion. We work quietly and confidentially until it is time to take a transaction into the public arena. We are veterans of many broad public auction processes that have yielded attractive prices for our selling clients. However, if we believe that a confidential, targeted effort to identify and negotiate with a select group of potential counterparties will better serve our client, that is the process we will recommend.
Our senior professionals use an “in the trenches” client service approach that enables us to be particularly effective in situations involving complex structuring, valuation, fairness or conflict issues. Primary services include:
• Mergers and Acquisitions
• Sales and Divestitures
• Proxy Solicitations
• Takeover Defense
• Fairness Opinions
