MERGERS & ACQUISITIONS

Buy-Side

We are optimistic for the future of well-run businesses based in Ireland and believe there is significant opportunity in the current market in Ireland and the UK.

We have been retained by some of Irelands leading entrepreneurs and entrepreneurial companies to acquire businesses both in Ireland and abroad as part of these client’s strategy for investment and growth. We work closely with these clients to ensure that the target businesses meet their objectives and will deliver on their strategy.

We have also been active in advising clients on such opportunities including targeting companies which are in distress, require recapitalisation or are currently subject to a formal insolvency process. In these scenarios, Capnua's unique mix of corporate finance and insolvency expertise is critical to being able to see through the complications of the situation and identify the opportunity.

  • Advising on what actions have to be taken prior to a sale process;
