Buy-Side Deal Sourcing
What are the benefits for a buyer?
Paley’s deals are proprietary, pre-interviewed and pre-qualified. We keep our clients out of auctions. Paley sources deals for each type of its buy-side clients – including private equity groups, family offices, corporate acquirers, fundless sponsors, venture capitalists, angel investors, individual partners in private equity groups and family offices and qualified high net-worth investor groups. Paley sources all its own deals. We interview and qualify the owners of each target company we introduce to our clients.
For those owners not willing to sell now, we conduct a courting process. We remain in consistent contact with these owners. We build relationships with them, and reintroduce them to our clients when these owners are ready to sell. Deal sourcing is based on a detailed understanding of each client’s acquisition criteria. We source both platform and add-on deals.
We source deals based on revenue/EBITDA ranges, deals within specific geographic footprints, and deals which compliment the skill sets of executives-in-residence. Deals sourced include seed capital, growth capital, recapitalizations and buyouts. Our typical buy-side clients seek companies with revenues between $10 million and $500 million.
