Offering vast experience in various transactional structures , we are often able to solve problems for owners before they arise, ensuring a smooth transaction. The efficiency of our sale process is strongly correlated to our ability to identify and work with both domestic and international investors/buyers for the business we are selling.
M&A Buy side advisory
Urban America is primed to assist their clients in the process of purchasing a company (whole or in part). Once we have assisted our clients in identifying their ideal target, we then offer seasoned services across a wide array of acquisitions. Our ability to remain successful is in part thanks to our expertise of the sector (being the place of our birth), coupled with our ability to understand the professional and cultural differences between both sides. By utilizing this wealth of knowledge and understanding, Urban America is often able to provide more attractive valuations than our competitors.
Although European countries, the region still largely remains unknown and mysterious to most international investors. There is no single best way to do business in Southeast Europe. It is advisable to enter the market through local partners, since traditional business communication is based on trust, friendship, and political and personal influences. Who you know is crucial for any kind of business. Although modern forms of communication are present, personal contact still plays the most critical role in any successful venture.
Face-to-face meetings are vital in forming professional relationships necessary to become successful in sectors that may deviate slightly from the normal business expectations. It is imperative to find the right contacts, and to have the right local representation, who can use their knowledge and connections to ensure a smooth acquisition.
