Mergers & Acquisitions

Due Diligence

Things may not always be what they appear to be. Organizations have to carefully tread the potential landmines which are often hidden, and require a granular approach to reviewing the business to avoid traps. We here at GSC understand this perfectly. Understanding inherent risks of a deal transaction, let it be buying, selling or merging requires an astute analysis of the business.

GSC views Due Diligence with objectivity in mind. Our business experts aid us in valuing the business’s intrinsic value, and the associated inherent risk of the business that comes along with it. We provide a structural approach to ensure the decisions taken on deal transactions are always well informed and not by hindsight.

IPO Consulting

IPOs can result in a significant valuation for the organization when done carefully. It is a formidable task and preparing for its journey is cardinal. Organizations need to be trained properly before they embark on IPO. It is more similar to a marathon than a sprint race as it requires long-range planning, conserving energy, sustaining momentum, and pacing at a right speed in the last round to reach the finish line. It calls for organizational endurance, grit and significant amount of organizational fitness to cross the IPO hurdle.

GSC works with our client’s CXO suite and board in preparing the IPO Strategy, Developing the IPO Structures, carry out IPO Diagnostics and Report, process transactions and reporting streamline, developing talent management and defining set of processes and policies to combat the IPO challenges.

Our structured approach starts 2 years before the actual marathon race to first develop organizational fitness. We keep organizations on a strict coaching plan and periodically calibrate results for improved growth and results.

Feasibility Studies

Economic viability of new ventures is a critical decision parameter. A forward thrust is required for a new business initiative and is vital to a business success to ensure the businesses are able to manage the risk themselves while walking into new lines.

However, such initiatives must be backed up by strong techno-economic-commercial feasibility studies, which essentially confirm the ‘To Do’ or ‘Not to Do’ concept.

While business uncertainties are common in nature, a well thought out plan and idea on laying the common success factors will accurately predict the likelihood of success or failure.

Our team has years of business and financial advisory expertise and can provide a specific outcome on feasibility by scanning the market potential, validation of business proposition and developing a financial model with suggestion of alternative options.

PPP Transaction advisory

Governments all over the world face fiscal budget constraints to turn to private sector for infrastructure development as an alternative to meet their fiscal gap. Public Private Sector Partnerships (PPP) creates a longer time horizon of cost allocation and are very successful once the framework has been well established.

PPP can unlock valuable drivers by bringing in private enterprise skill-set, technology, expertise and efficiency in the developing large scale and complex projects for many countries.

PPP models of a business must generate predictable revenue stream so that private sectors can recover its costs. Such models call for development of PPP model and framework along with aggregating the cost allocation model, risk sharing between government and private sector, and lastly how assets are transferred to the government as per contact performance.

We provide PPP transaction advisory on providing full feasibility report, defining and putting together life-cycle revenue, cost and risk sharing models and assistance in contractual management and project monitoring and evaluation.
