Mergers & Acquisitions

Structura Group provides a wide range of investment banking advice to shareholders and management teams through all stages of the sale or acquisition process.
We have expertise in sell-side, buy-side and divestiture transactions on behalf of portfolio companies, private equity funds, closely-held businesses and publicly-traded companies and across a wide range of industries.  Combined we bring to bear over forty years of experience, judgment and deal know how to maximize value and facilitate seamless transitions of ownership.

Mergers and Acquisitions Services for:

  • Corporate divestitures
  • Corporate acquisitions
  • Joint venture structuring
  • Leveraged and management buyouts
  • Recapitalizations

Capital Raising and Private Placements

Regardless of the transaction or situation (growth capital, financial restructuring, or acquisition financing), we have significant relationships with all types of financing sources (senior debt, second lien loans, mezzanine or growth equity) that allow us to structure and find the appropriate capital for our clients.

  • Perform a thorough analysis including the company’s short and long term financial needs
  • Determine the optimal capital structure
  • Assist in preparing the requisite descriptive memorandum
  • Evaluate proposals and assist in negotiations to secure the most favorable terms and structure
  • Manage the entire process through to closing

Outsourced Corporate Development

Today many companies choose to not maintain the overhead of a full time corporate development staff and sometimes need to rely on outside investment bankers for transaction advice.

We offer outsourced corporate development services to middle market and larger public companies that need assistance with:

  • Divestiture assistance and preparation
  • Financial modeling
  • Business unit carve out analysis
  • Valuation advice
  • Full transaction execution through to completion

What might be seen as a typical transaction suited for a typical investment banker is most often times not the case.  Corporate carve-outs, sale of a non-core business, or the sale of a plant or product lines are transactions that are complicated by many unexpected or unforeseen issues. 

We bring to each transaction an unbiased objectivity along with the experience and knowledge to identify and proactively address many of the issues before they arise – before the business goes on the market or a transaction is initiated.  Our approach offers the potential to reduce the risk of value erosion or overpayment and limit the liabilities and uncertainties associated with a successful transaction.

Management Buyouts

The opportunity to buy all or part of the business is an exciting opportunity for a senior executive and their team. Often owners and the management team lack the experience and understanding of the current transaction market to objectively structure, finance and complete a deal without the help of an outside advisor.

We have extensive experience representing senior executives, management teams and business owners throughout the entire management buyout process.  We provide the advice and guidance needed from the earliest phases of the transaction through to closing – from negotiating rights to bid for the company, formulating offers, valuation, structuring the transaction, assisting with the preparation of offering materials, competitively raising the required debt and equity capital, and negotiating the non-financial terms that help ensure a successful transaction.


Valuation knowledge is core to every complex financial transaction.  Whether a simple desktop valuation exercise is required to satisfy shareholders, related parties, lenders or a more complex valuation analysis is needed to support a corporate transaction or a plan of reorganization, we have the experience, and expert analytical skills and capabilities that our clients rely on for independent and objective advice.
