As a segment of private equity growing in size and relevance, independent sponsors face a variety of unique challenges, including sourcing transactions, raising capital, and managing resources. At CohnReznick, we forge deep and trustworthy relationships with independent sponsors, facilitating and contributing to their success.
Our specialists approach each client relationship holistically, expanding beyond traditional services. Our network of debt and equity capital providers and access to the independent sponsor ecosystem, helps our clients accelerate growth and maximize value, while mitigating risk and cost exposure.
From a transaction and firm perspective, our professionals provide industry-specific transaction expertise, comprehensive due diligence, and post-close support. And when the deal is done, our advisory, audit and tax professionals continue to identify opportunities and help clients meet compliance and regulatory requirements.
Our specialized team brings years of experience and deep subject-matter expertise to help you:
- Put effective infrastructure in place to prepare for seamless transactions
- Perform efficient due diligence within the context of an independent sponsor deal
- Find the right investment partners to form trustworthy and long-term working relationships
Deeply rooted in the independent sponsor space, our service leaders are flexible, creative and innovative in bringing practical solutions to our clients.
Due diligence is essential for any transaction, particularly when your own capital is on the line. Effective and efficient financial, tax, and legal due diligence can help ensure that your time and money are well spent and minimize the risk to you and your investors.
INTRODUCTIONS AND DEAL SOURCING
Emerging independent sponsors can lack the track record, credibility, and reputation to secure the needed capital to fund investments, and to source deals. With our extensive database and strong long-term relationships, we can provide direct access to capital providers, debt providers, equity funds, family offices, investment bankers, and direct investment opportunities.
A HOLISTIC APPROACH TO THE TRANSACTION AND BUSINESS LIFECYCLE
Access to capital and identifying a transaction target are key requirements that we can help address. As your firm grows, has multiple transactions, expands its team, and builds an infrastructure, your needs and services also grow and expand. Through our industry go-to-market approach and integrated services across advisory, audit, and tax, we can help fulfill your needs. Our team can serve as a central point of contact between you and your partners, which helps to ensure a coordinated and efficient approach, putting you first.
Get in touch with us today to tap into our depth of knowledge and experience in the independent sponsor community.
