Over time, Garros Group has worked with leading companies and investors on transactions ranging from the straightforward to the relatively complex. Our success in the market has been driven by some fundamental elements:

Industry Knowledge: We devote our attention to the information services sector, with particular focus on several of its sub-segments. Our principals have a depth of experience in both the investment banking world and the corporate operating environment, and the firm maintains close relationships and active dialogues with leading companies and investors in the sector.

Strategic Perspective: Companies face a series of decisions over time with respect to potential corporate transactions, from early fundraising to subsequent acquisitions and divestitures, to the possible sale of the firm. We assist clients in focusing on value enhancement and avoiding distractions. We have advised clients through these stages to achieve long term objectives.

Financial and Transactional Expertise: Our principals have major Wall Street firm experience and combine that financial and transactional acumen with industry expertise. M&A know-how may not be a core competence for operating firms or even sophisticated investors. We bring the requisite skill and perspective for any transaction environment.

Our transaction experience covers the full range of deal environments and situations, including:

  • Sell-Side Assignments: We offer a range of services from a discreet, highly targeted sale to a full-scale auction process targeted toward major strategic acquirers and/or investor groups.
  • Buy-Side Assignments: We work with clients to develop winning strategies and execute an acquisition program which may include a market survey for superior candidates, valuation, due diligence and negotiation of definitive terms.
  • Other Situations: We are also experienced in providing fairness opinions, advising special committees of a client’s Board, raising growth capital, structuring recapitalizations and establishing joint ventures
