Investor Due Diligence
M&A activity in payments continues at high speed but hitting the right target takes discipline and industry expertise. Buy-side professionals turn to Glenbrook to help.
The payments and fintech industries continue to attract significant investor interest. What’s not to like about predictable, recurring revenues, potential uplift from underutilized assets or poor partnering, and a strong M&A environment?
Glenbrook supports the investment community in two distinct ways – market and technical due diligence. The details matter in both. Knowing the right questions to ask is just a start. Knowing what the answers should be matters more. We have a process to help with both, starting with the following considerations:
Market Due Diligence
- What are the key trends arising in the industry?
- What is the market opportunity? What’s the addressable market and how well is it being served?
- How do we differentiate players within the payments value chain, in a particular sector?
Technical Due Diligence
- What are the key growth opportunities for the target?
- How sustainable is the position and strong is the differentiation?
- How is leadership approaching the market? Is the company organized for innovation?
- What risk, fraud, and compliance issues exist for the company?
- Who are the target’s partners, what’s in each contract, and is there room for margin improvement?
- Are there new capabilities to leverage?
- What synergies, if any, can be realized?
We assisted a global PSP and its private equity backers in conducting market due diligence on a major deal to expand the PSP’s presence in the U.S. market, constructing a comprehensive revenue projection model in the process. The deal was completed on schedule and now represents a core line of business for the acquiring company.
