OUR PHILOSOPHY

We believe that technology has the power to change the world for the better, but that a blind belief in technology is hazardous.  We take a rigorous approach to our assessment of innovations, companies, sectors and industries.  We pride ourselves on domain knowledge and foster a culture of continuous learning. If we don’t know, we will say so, and then go and learn.

There have been few true innovations in finance since the formalisation of double entry bookkeeping in the 14th Century.  Technology companies have adopted a number of accounting techniques over the years and we have seen most of the tricks.  Value is about cash-flow, and exotic accounting can’t change that. 


OUR SERVICES

When you are considering M&A, whether selling your company or buying someone else's, we deliver global reach.  To assess the deal we provide detailed and reasoned valuation frameworks and scenario analyses.  We help build the investment case and will happily tell you not to do a deal if we do not believe it is right for you.  We prepare and co-ordinate the due diligence and we work with your legal advisers to get the right deal closed.

When you need finance we help companies to prepare for and raise capital, to support and accelerate growth or to finance acquisitions.  This can be in the form of debt or equity (and variations in between) and we can help you chose the optimal mix for the circumstances at hand.

When you need to make fast choices about which way to go, we provide strategic advice, usually relating to capital allocation in the context of rapid technology shifts.
