Evaluating Strategic Alternatives

Most companies, particularly well-managed businesses, have multiple strategic options available for both liquidity and growth. Evaluating Strategic Alternatives (ESA) is a formal review, analysis, and decision-making process that guides owners in assessing their financial and strategic options. The ESA process helps owners clarify and prioritize their personal and business objectives based on their company’s strategic direction, financial characteristics, and shareholder liquidity preferences.

Whether an owner’s goal is to expand the business, or to pursue a value-optimizing exit strategy, our investment banking team’s ESA assessment provides an objective, market-based valuation, as well as the options to achieve the value, and the implications of each option for the owner. The output from an ESA assessment includes a framework for strategic and operational decision-making; alignment between the owner’s long-term business objectives and the needs of the management team and shareholders; optimization of wealth transfer between shareholders; and coordinated tax structuring and exit planning strategies.
