Mergers & Acquisitions

We specialise in private M&A transactions for sell side i.e. working with the management of a company. We have considerable experience and can offer strategic insight along with practical support on how a sell-side process actually works and the steps that need to be taken to be successful. We are able to leverage an extensive network of relationships and a wide-ranging understanding of the Information, Communication and Technology landscape. We also have significant operational experience, which we believe makes us more understanding of our client's position and also makes us somewhat unique.

Private Placements

We have substantial knowledge in private placements from a number of perspectives including operational, as an investor and also as an advisor. We have very positive relationships with institutional investors, corporate investors and business angels.

Princelet Partners also works to provide discreet solutions for clients looking to test trade sale strategies or preparing for a private placement. These compartmentalised deliverables allow clients to evaluate the potential strategy without having to commit entirely to the process.
