Mergers & Acquisitions

Many financial institutions and industry clients have relied upon us in negotiating a merger or acquisition, structuring a joint venture, or evaluating a transaction. Stancil & Co. continues to excel in coordinating and negotiating such contracts, drawing on the experience of numerous major transactions.

Stancil works quickly and confidentially with key legal, financial, and industry personnel. We provide:
  • Complete asset due diligence
  • Review of current operations and existing purchase and sales contracts
  • Development of plans and procedures for the orderly transition of ownership
  • Joint venture management
  • Assistance with transfer of permits
  • Measurement and valuation of inventories at closing
  • Development of business plans and cash flow models
  • Capital budget planning.

Our services in a merger or acquisition often include evaluation and comparison of potential opportunities, potential capital requirements, and assessment of overall project profitability. In support of such significant decisions, we may provide analyses of historical and future operations, develop cash flow projections, and recommend structural and operating changes.

Our domestic and international network of industry contacts enables us to bring together companies who unknowingly may have complementary objectives. This sometimes takes the form of bringing together industry partners to take advantage of a market opportunity, or alternatively, it can take the form of facilitating a joint effort between an industrial and financial group to accomplish goals.
