Framework


Ascent’s process begins with learning your specific business and its opportunities, and then moves on to developing a strategic partnering plan, identifying the right partner sets, developing a partnering process, generating interest from a variety of partners, and negotiating a deal to closing. Ascent is committed to initiating and tracking the process from inception to conclusion. Transactions can be complex and time consuming but Ascent’s experience in the process is invaluable to success.

The partnering process is designed to:

  • Rapidly get to market, especially if you are approached
  • Optimally position your company to attract maximum interest
  • Identify and engage ideal candidates in discussion
  • Work with candidates to help find a “win-win” transaction
  • Negotiate the transaction
  • Realize and maximize enterprise value
  • Minimize management time

Potential partners appreciate focused presentations to get at the strategic value relative to their businesses. Our extensive contacts and relationships help streamline this process.
