Evercore's Advisory business provides classical strategic and tactical advice and unparalleled execution to public and private companies and financial sponsors across a broad range of industry sectors and geographies. Our reputation as an advisor of choice for prominent multinational corporations and financial sponsors stems from our particular acumen in advising on large, highly- complex strategic transactions. Our success begins and ends with an unstinting commitment to delivering world-class client service.
Our approach in all situations is first and always rooted in serving the client's best interests, which also means advising a client not to pursue a transaction when it does not enhance their strategic objectives or measure-up to their standards.
We provide fully-staffed project teams with industry-specific expertise, selecting an appropriate mix of talent from our more than 500 bankers around the world. Each client project team is selected based on the unique characteristics, opportunities and challenges of the situation at hand.
Mergers and Acquisitions
In advising companies on the acquisition of a company or set of assets, we evaluate potential acquisition targets, provide valuation analyses, and evaluate and propose financial and strategic alternatives. We also advise as to the timing, structure, financing, and pricing of a proposed acquisition, and assist in negotiating and closing the deal.
Divestitures and Sale Transactions
We advise clients contemplating the sale of certain businesses, assets, or their entire company by evaluating and recommending financial and strategic alternatives with respect to the sale, advising on the appropriate sales process for the situation and valuation issues, and preparing an offering memorandum and other appropriate sales materials. We also identify and contact qualified acquirers and assist in negotiating and closing the sale.
Special Committee and Fairness Opinion Assignments
Evercore is frequently tapped for Special Committee assignments and to render Fairness Opinions. We are well known for our independence, our discretion, and for devoting senior-level attention throughout a project lifecycle. This results in our ability to provide an extremely thorough, well- considered, and unbiased perspective on third-party strategic transactions.
Capital Markets Advisory and Equity Underwriting
We serve as an independent, objective advisor in financing situations, with expertise across the entire spectrum of capital structure decisions, including private placements of debt or equity. Evercore also helps companies raise capital through public offerings of equity and equity-linked securities, including IPOs and follow-on offerings.
