06

Our process

We explain the investment process

01

Attach your NDA

Attached you can find our standard NDA. Please send us a signed copy, so I can share it with our CEO to countersign it and send you the fully executed agreement back for your records.

02

Financial information

Also attached there is a workbook with a request of the main financial information we need to collect to be able to build our investment thesis and request Board for approval. It usually doesn’t take more than two business days to fill it out on average. This said, if you have similar information already ready to share, we can look at it and fill the template by ourselves with as many inputs as possible to save your time and get back to you only with the outstanding questions and doubts. Also, we will appreciate to receive your commercial brochure, if you have one.

03

Indicative offer

Upon receipt of this financial data and before submitting our indicative offer, we usually set up a call to clarify doubts and conduct a Management Presentation, when I will also introduce our CEO and M&A Director to you.

04

Preliminary agreement

If we can reach a preliminary agreement, we will ask you for signing our Letter of Intent to start the due diligence process right after. Afterwards, if there is a good communication between the parties and we receive the required information in due time, the transaction can be completed within the next 45-60 days.
