The Value of Mid-market Investment Bankers and M&A Advisors

You have invested your life into your business and have created an immense amount of value. However, how can you ensure that your business can go through a sale process without losing its key value along the way?

The Key to a Locked Box

An alternative to traditional completion accounts & purchase price adjustments

The Key to a Locked Box Header

Doing deals can be an exciting and rewarding process for all parties involved, but in most cases, they require an incredible amount of time, analysis and negotiation to get to the finish line. One of the most contentious issues that continues to plague deals is around working capital – specifically the purchase price adjustments that result from setting working capital targets. If consensus cannot be easily reached, working capital discussions can prolong negotiations, leading to deal fatigue, increased costs and a risk of losing the deal.

To address some of the pain points associated with traditional completion accounts, the use of a Locked Box Mechanism is becoming increasingly prominent, as it can help lead to greater deal transparency, better decisions, and smoother negotiations.

Canada Olympic House welcomes WelchGroup Consulting

The Canada Olympic House for the 2018 Winter Olympic Games in PyeongChang will not only house Team Canada and all of their excited fans, but it will be opening its doors to two WelchGroup Consulting staff members as well!

Hye-min Lee, WelchGroup Consulting Analyst, emigrated from South Korea to Canada alone when she was just 15 years old. Now awaiting her Permanent Residency, Hye-min applied and was selected to volunteer in the Canada Olympic House. She will have the unique experience of volunteering as a Korean, for Canada, in her home country- a truly surreal opportunity. She is looking forward to meeting all of the athletes, their families, and their friends.

Cody Sorensen, Senior M&A Associate with WelchGroup Consulting, will also be attending the 2018 Winter Olympic Games, but not for the first time. A second generation Olympian, in 2014 Cody competed in Sochi as a member of the four-man bobsleigh team! While Cody traded his speedsuit for a business suit, all of his former teammates will be competing- they are currently ranked 1st and 2nd in the World. This will be Cody’s first time attending the Olympics as a spectator; he will be cheering on his friends from the Canada Olympic House.

Together, they will have the best of both worlds. While Cody will be navigating Hye-min through a unique Olympic experience, he will have the benefit of a tour guide to give him a truly authentic Korean experience.

Go Canada Go!

FinTech: A threat to the Canadian banking system?

FinTech: A threat to the Canadian banking system?

Headlines from around the world in 2016 grabbed our attention with Brexit, Trump, a refugee crisis and wild fires in Fort McMurray. Despite economic hardship in some countries and prosperity in others, there is no doubt that technology played a significant role – both good and bad – in shaping the business environment in 2016. The ‘sharing-economy’ – much like the terms millennials, unicorns, blockchain and big data – is now part of the nomenclature of business.
