Ghaf Capital has a proven track record of successful M&A advisory transactions across a range of countries and industries where we have acted on the sell-side, the buy-side, and on merger transactions.
In a buy-side engagement, Ghaf Capital will seek to assist the Company’s shareholders in a successful acquisition. The goal of this process is to obtain the most attractive possible valuation of the target. A variety of strategies depending on confidentiality needs and time sensitivity can be used to complete a successful acquisition: negotiated acquisition, multiple-round auction or unsolicited approach.
A sell-side M&A engagement is the process through which Ghaf Capital seeks to maximize a company’s value by executing a full or partial sale to a third party. The goal of this process is to efficiently meet the objectives of shareholders and maximize the valuation of the company being sold. Based on the client’s needs, a sell-side engagement can proceed through a variety of different mechanisms: full or partial sale, joint venture, spin-off or split-off.

Venture Capital Advisory
The firm does not act as a principal in raising venture capital but rather as a financial advisor and placement agent with the many top-tier venture capital firms with which we have relationships. We only look at companies that have solid revenues, but profitability is not always a requirement. We will raise capital in the right circumstances for a company that is growing rapidly but is on the cusp of profitability.
