We have some very firm beliefs, and one of the main points that will hold close to our heart is that for a merger or securing to be successful, the sum of the two parts should be far greater than the value of the two separate parts. We believe that one plus one should be greater than two. Shareholder esteem should always be higher after a merger or acquisition, and this is still our primary goal and objective. The objective is for the strength of the two organisations combined to be considerably stronger than the two separate organisations – this is our rationale behind our philosophy.
We believe that being true to our philosophy is what motivates organisations to come to us. Frequently these are businesses that are underachieving for a variety of reasons. A stronger firm should always offer help, assistance and guidance to a company that may be faltering. It will help to build resilience, force them to become more competitive, which will, inevitably, result in a more cost-effective operation.
