Private Equity Syndication

The sectors Avendus focuses on, namely IT Services, BPO, Pharmaceuticals and Consumer Goods/Services are all dynamic sectors in which rapid growth is changing industry structures rapidly. To capitalize on a given sector's robust demand, external capital often becomes a catalyst to achieving market leadership. Avendus’ focus in this process is to assist companies in raising the necessary capital to meet their growth objectives.

Private Equity Funding
We provide end-to-end advisory solutions to companies in high-growth markets on their capitalization/re-capitalization strategies, which helps them to achieve their growth targets. Typical private equity funding engagements have the following phases in which Avendus works closely with the client’s team in consummating the transaction.

Phase 1: Collateral Preparation
In this phase, we start by engaging the client in a workshop where based on the company’s existing business profile, growth prospects and Avendus’ knowledge of the private equity market, we help the client decide on the most effective capitalization strategy. We also prepare a complete packet of information which enables the transaction to be presented in front of potential investors in a structured way.

In this phase, Avendus helps the client to decide the best way to position the transaction, to maximize value for its shareholders and employees.

Phase 2: Roadshow and Investor Shortlisting
In this phase, Avendus helps the client decide on the kind of private equity funds who will be the right investors for the client, holds initial discussions with the investors, helps the client have road-shows with meeting the potential investors and advises the client to prioritize among the investors to create a shortlist.

Avendus uses its network of relationships with global private equity funds extensively in this phase to identify the right investors.

Phase 3: Commercial Term Sheet
In this phase, Avendus helps the client analyze various offers from potential investors, drives deal negotiations with investors and ensures that the client enters into a term sheet with the private equity fund which meets the client’s strategic objectives.

Avendus leverages its experience in closing transactions as well as its ability to create various options for its client, to create the most effective transaction for the clients’ shareholders and employees.

Phase 4: Due Diligence and Closure
In this phase, Avendus helps the client in co-ordinating the overall due diligence process, and negotiates on the final definitive agreements with the potential investor. Avendus drives this process to reach closure on the transaction.
