Acquisition & Buy-Side Process


The timeline is typically open-ended during a buy-side agreement, given that the process involves the search for a suitable acquisition target. Primary phases of the process and services performed by Pavilion advisors include:

  • Initial meeting and consultation to determine the client company’s needs
  • Industry analysis
  • A detailed search for possible target companies
  • Initial contact and assessment of target companies
  • Detailed analysis of target companies
  • The decision regarding which target(s) to pursue
  • Valuation and offer
  • Due diligence
  • Closing


Buyers prefer to purchase proven companies operating within strong markets with reliable and growing cash flow to avoid the heavy lifting and risk inherent in a start-up enterprise.

We execute your acquisition strategy by providing insight into market conditions, identifying and screening acquisition candidates, facilitating
communication, analyzing data and helping you to compose a fair offer that will get accepted, all while maintaining your privacy and confidentiality.


It is truly not over until the money changes hands and we work with the buyers and sellers and their legal counsel to drive a deal to the closing table. Our experience provides us with the ability to recognize potential road blocks to closing and thus provide assistance to achieving a successful closing.
