Why Providence Advisors?

Most middle market companies have difficulty justifying the considerable allocation of resources to building and maintaining the transaction expertise and deal origination infrastructure needed to effectively source and capitalize on value-creating transaction opportunities.

Private equity groups have transaction infrastructure and financing relationships, but face different challenges: How to generate quality proprietary investment opportunities. And how to most effectively separate the wheat from the chaff of deals being broadly auctioned by sell-side investment bankers.

Our Solutions - We combine the transaction execution capabilities and capital market relationships of a traditional investment bank with our focused industry knowledge and the research and analytical capabilities of leading strategic intelligence consultants to provide clients with the transaction and information resources needed to execute effective acquisition, sale, and financing transactions. Our research-enhanced approach is particularly powerful in (i) identifying and evaluating acquisition candidates - before your competitors or sellside investment bankers do, (ii) assessing the merits and timing of a potential sale or recapitalization, and (iii) leveraging superior information to optimally structure and negotiate the terms of a transaction.

Our Capabilities - Depending on the needs of a particular client, we can assist in assessing and refining growth strategies, evaluating the attractiveness of a sale or divestiture process, determining the best means of financing internal or external growth opportunities, and executing strategic and financing transactions. Where acquisitions are appropriate, we can identify and improve knowledge of acquisition candidates, enhance proprietary deal flow, effectively pursue attractive opportunities, successfully structure and negotiate transactions, and – exploiting the intelligence-gathering capabilities of our partners – perform superior business due diligence.

Customized Services - We stress individual attention, custom tailored engagements, and absolute commitment to advancing our clients’ interests. Cost-effectiveness and flexibility are hallmarks of our advisory approach. Only experienced senior investment bankers will be working on a client’s transaction or project. And they will act only in the best interests of the client. Providence’s only business is providing clients with sound strategic advice and execution services. Whether in a limited due diligence assignment or a more comprehensive evaluation of strategic alternatives, we strive to understand client needs, resources and objectives, and then structure a service offering that addresses the unique situation.
