When it comes to succeeding in business, the last mile is usually as critical as the first mile!
We are one of India’s fast-growing boutique consulting firms with a strategic focus on M&A, fund-raising and debt management, based out of Chennai, India. We work with several top executives in the small-to-medium enterprise space and help them make better decisions, convert those decisions to actions, and deliver the sustainable success they desire. We are passionate about achieving better results for our clients; results that go beyond financials and are uniquely tailored, practical, holistic and enduring.
Our accent is on Sell side advisory, advising the client end to end, starting with assessment regarding Sell decision to realisation. More often than not, timing involves growing first. To this end, we advise companies on their most critical issues and opportunities: strategy, marketing, finance, operations, technology and digital transformations, sustainability and mergers & acquisitions, across all industries and geographies.
Our network includes Merchant Bankers, Scores of Investment Bankers, Due Diligence Firms, Asset Reconstruction Companies, Top Bankers and top consulting firms.
In the past, we’ve worked with major companies, many regional and local organizations, non-profit organizations and private equity funds. We are proud of our clients’ track record. Unfortunately, business life-cycles do not follow a template. They are highly dynamic in nature and are usually driven by several varying priorities from time to time. Better business ideas, old age, health, financial issues, time constraints, expansion, migration or management issues, etc. call for a diligent and well-informed last mile decision. The cost of failure due to wrong call is usually very high. These situations are best handled by expert advisers.
